Catsamoa79 She seems really nice, very friendly in her emails :-) And this is the first time I've gotten a full request from a partial. Especially encouraging since the partial was 100 pages.

Form Q: 6/20/17
8/18/17 - After tweeting Carrie I took her advice and resubmitted. (I'd never received an auto-confirmation from original date.) We'll see if it works.

PR: 8/30/17 -- 100 pp. Yay!
FR: 10/13/17 -- Request for Full ... Make that a triple "Yay"!! (She did say she has tons of reading to catch up on, so it will be awhile before hearing from her.)
