I made the mistake of querying her with a YA project and she kindly responded that she only represents adult fiction.

Got a full request around 6/7. Not super pumped with the response rate (most hover around 200+ days), but staying optimistic. Will update with any responses, etc, for those of us waiting.

Received a same-day rejection from Ms. Marr that was both personal and helpful.
How rare is that in this day and age, when so many agents don't even bother to respond?

"While there is a lot to like here, I'm afraid I didn't connect with the actual story. I think that the main issue I had was that I was unable to suspend disbelief enough to really be able to immerse myself in the story."

11/2/19: Pitched in person at conference. Great feedback. Asked to cut word count then query her again
FQ: 11/14/19
PR: 12/6/19 - Asked for first 50 (sent 12/6/19)
Rejection: 02/11/2020: ...And while there is a lot to like here, and you know I really love the concept and the voice, I'm afraid that the consensus here is that the pace still just isn't where it needs to be to be competitive in a crowded market...

FQ: 7/19
Full Request: 7/22
Manuscript sent: 7/22
Nudge: 12/16
CNR: 2/5

It's been almost 200 days. No response to a nudge. I'm assuming Jill is either just sitting on my manuscript and waiting for someone else to offer rep or isn't interested.

Rejection: 2/7. Apologized for the delay. Said there was a lot to like, but there were too many paranormal elements, even for horror.
