Closing this one out based on her stats. Seems like she'll request pretty quickly if interest.

Requested 22 hours after I sent the email. Very grateful for the opportunity!

Rejection Feb 8th: Wasn't invested in the characters and needed more voice. Oh well, having closure is always good and I still appreciated her interest. She seems like a great agent. Moving on!

This one really hurt! She sent the nicest personalized rejection letter. Would have loved to work with her!

Closed this out a while ago, but now just got a form rejection. It came in as a BCC so obviously sent out as a mass rejection. I've never seen a rejection come in as a BCC and I'm rather put off by her use of it.
