EQ: #DVPit request
ER: 10/31

It's a no, but I really appreciated the quick reply and reasoning behind it. Linda is not open to PBs at the moment, so I was happy even to get a request.

She was supposed to re-open to queries tomorrow (Nov. 1) but she announced on Twitter that she opened yesterday! (I'd hoped to be at the top of the list. LOL.)

EQ: 10/31/19
ER: 11/1/19

Very disappointed--we have a mutual author friend who referred me—BUT Linda's brief rejection was personalized and kind (but not helpful in terms of why she passed other than it's just not a fit for her list right now.) SUPER FAST...less than 24 hours. Which is better than waiting forever and wondering...

Hi Michelle,
Thanks for your query. I'm afraid this is a pass. It just doesn't feel like a good fit for me. I wish you the best of luck though.
Kindly,
Linda Epstein

EQ 4/1
Rejected 4/2: Thanks for your query. I'm afraid this is a pass for me. I'm just not connecting to the voice in the way I'd need to offer representation. I wish you the best of luck though.
Not sure if this is a form or just brief.
