Sent query + first 50 08/09/18 after agency liked my pitch in Sept 2018 PitMad
Nudged with offer of rep from another agent 09/20/18
Accepted offer of rep from Jill 09/27/18 :)

(I thought I'd come back to add this as I always found these helpful when I was querying!)

Just want to comment that my full request on 03/11 was from pitmad for any pitches she liked. Hence why some probably say "0 days." She hasn't replied other than that automatic response to an email.

Data explorer indicates she makes requests from her queries (when interested) very quickly, and she's made several requests after my query was sent. (Will update this if I eventually receive a rejection.) Good luck everyone!

Has anyone from October DVpit heard anything on material? I nudged and sent in a revision, but never heard anything, and according to premium, she has read material later than dvpit. Just wondering if I should CNR her?

Thank you for your email.

Please note that Cheryl Pientka is no longer with Jill Grinberg Literary Management as of 10/25/18. All queries addressed to her after this date will be deleted. Queries sent before this date will receive a response.

For all inquiries regarding representation, if you have not done so already, please email your original query with the first 50 pages of your manuscript or proposal attached as a Microsoft Word document so that we may best evaluate your submission.

All other inquiries will be responded to separately.

Thank you for your patience.

You wrote "Anyone else concerned because her website appears to be down?"

I wasn't...then you brought that up.
okay I checked. It reads:
"We are updating our website.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any inquiry."
Nothing to be alarmed about.
