Hi 64syzygy!
Usually when you get a request from an agent you reply in the original chain. If the agent has any requirements they’ll tell you.
Hope that helps!

Question for those who have had requests—are you replying to the same email address or is there a different one? (If yes please don’t post the address here)
Thank you!!

11/29/18: ER but saying she liked the premise and voice but my pacing was inconsistent (too fast sometimes, too slow sometimes). Invited me to “reach out if I revise or have a new project.” I replied, asking if, should I revise, I should just requery or use a different subject line..
