I noticed there are people who got rejections after that date so I’m confused on whether or not it would be okay to follow up

@kateknows

I agree with @jennadevillier. They have a record of emails that come into them; she'll see that you've conversed in the past. I had a similar experience recently with another agent. I'd forgotten I queried her 2 years ago, so when she requested materials this time around, she realized this and noted how much my work has changed since then. You're good!

@kateknows I think you're fine! If she ends up requesting your new manuscript, you can mention it when you send it to her :)

Any experienced opinions? Several years ago, I queried Victoria, and she requested a full. Ultimately she passed with good feedback and offered to read a revision or a new work. Because I am an idiot, I re-queried her and forgot to cross check against agents who asked for fulls last time (it was 7 years ago but still). So I forgot to mention that this was requested in my new query. Did I blow a good opportunity? Backpedaling and mentioning it in a new email would be worse, right? #angst
