All correspondence was with Trena's assistant, Lillian Klein. I had asked if she would consider an R&R, but got no response.

Congrats Rumhoney! I've requeried her today with Chain Reaction. Keep us posted!

12/2/15: On 10/30/15, I've requeried Trena Keating with Chain Reaction--heard back today with a nice R. She admired much about my writing, but wasn't passionate enough to represent it. So I'll try her with Venom's requery next year.

3/3/16: On 2/3/16, I've requeried Trena with Venom and nudged her today. She passed--strong writing, interesting story, didn't have passion to take it on. So I'll try Jenny next month with better luck.
