EQ: August 2018
ER: March 2019 (request for more PB stories)

I was so shocked, surprised and super excited for the chance to send more of my work in March. It's been about 8 weeks, though, without a response. I assumed my August 2018 submission was a CNR. Not sure whether I should just sit-tight and wait this one out, too. Kind of wondering if my query went back to the bottom of her queue, even though it was requested. It's hard to be patient when such a fabulous agent requests more material!

Elizabeth has my adult romance full, so sent this query only after Christa confirmed on Twitter that I can go ahead.

Thanks @PBquerious! I never got one and was wondering if I messed up without realizing. I’ll have to check that the email address was right or not!
