Is anyone else waiting to hear back on a request?
I forgot to track this, but I believe I had sent to her in January.....

EQ - 10th Jan (although she's closed to submissions this was a #dvpit Tweet she'd liked)
Nudge with offer of representation - 2nd Jan
Polite email saying she didn't have time to read by my deadline of 9th Jan and wishing me luck - 3rd Jan

Queried 2/5 because Susan's blog made it seem as if she's open to queries, and a tweet from December/January said she was only closed through the first week of January... I got a "closed to submissions" response so I'll go ahead and withdraw my query and wait for her to officially open. Wish things had been more clear!

I saw three MSWL tweets she posted over the past year (they were all at least a few months old). I saw she was actively tweeting, so I tweeted back saying I just followed her submission guidelines and queried her with something from her MSWL. She didn't tweet back or respond to the query. And even though she says she is closed to submissions, on Twitter she said she is open to queries.

Her response was very supportive, but it just wasn't the right project for her.

ER 11/17/17 (form) "Thank you so much for sharing your book with me, I truly appreciate your interest. I've had a chance to review and consider your work and can see how much you've invested in this. Unfortunately, I don't think I'm the right agent for this particular project, so I must pass. But I send this with gratitude and all good wishes for the future. My very best..."
