FR: 10/15 from Suzie's assistant Sara
12/2 Nudge with offer of representation
12/5 Incredibly sweet step-aside. Sara and Suzie both loved it, but it ultimately had a few themes a little too similar to some clients on Suzie's list...
12/19 signed with another agent! :D

EQ on 10/29 for YA
Marking CNR because the auto response said to assume it's a pass after a month. Would have loved to have worked with her!

Requested full through contest, sent query and full 11/9.
Received email 11/9 that she received my MS. She said it might be up to 60 days for a response and to nudge if I haven't heard back after those 60 days. Very nice!
