On 2/29/16, I've requeried Victoria Marini with Venom and received a pass from her today--doesn't think it's the right material for her. I'll try her later this spring with Chain Reaction.

"Dear Author,

Thank you for the opportunity to consider your work, but I am sorry to say that I do not think this material would be right for me, and therefore I would not make your most effective advocate. Please remember this is just one agent’s opinion, and there may well be other agents who feel differently.

Thank you for thinking of me, and best of luck to you.

I sincerely apologize for the form gmail batch reply, but in order to answer everyone in a reasonable timeframe I can't reply individually.

All my best,"

Short story collection with lots of fairy tale retellings (she listed retellings as an interest on MSWL)

Emailed Query: 7/17
Full Request: 7/19
Nudged her with other offer: 8/19
Email to set up an offer call: 8/19
Official offer of rep: 8/21

I ended up turning her down to work with the other agent who offered rep, but Victoria is kind, enthusiastic, and so, so smart; I'm really thankful she connected with my manuscript.
