'Thank you for thinking of us with SHADOW-STAINED but the project does not look like a fit for me at this time. I'm being extremely selective with fiction these days and this is a very subjective decision on my part. So I'm sure another agent or editor will feel differently.'

Giving up on this one...

FR via PitMad: 6.9.18
Nudged 9.4.18 - response that she was busy keeping up with existing clients over summer
FR #2 via PitMad: 12.6.18 - reminded her she already had MS from June PitMad, but sent her revised version after doing a non-exclusive R&R with another agency that ended in a pass in the interim
Email response: 12.11.18 - she thanked me for the revised version and said she hopes to catch up with submissions after the holidays
Haven't heard anything as of 4.11.19
*Update* 4.26.19 Withdrew MS due to offer of rep on a different MS. Jill sent a congrats email.
