She requested an old ms of mine twice during #Pitmad fall 2017 and #dvpit 2017, but I never heard back from her. After much debating and crying, I shelved that story and wrote a new one. Then, after pitching my new story in #PitMad March, Jennifer sent me a very kind dm requesting that I query her + first 50 pages + synopsis. She's very behind on her requested materials, but I know she is working very hard to get them read!

EQ+materials sent: 10/3/18
Confirmation of receipt via Twitter: 10/3/18

Fingers and toes crossed for this one omg

I got a super nice step aside from Jennifer after an offer of rep - she said she was too swamped to read fully in time.

Tip: Don't close Jennifer out quickly; she takes her time because she really cares to give everyone's work a chance.
Also: It can be risky to nudge agents with revisions and I don't normally advise it, but I have done it successfully when I had reason to believe the agent hadn't started reading yet or the changes were significant enough to mention but still minor enough not to warrant a reread if agent had started reading.

Good luck everyone!

I recently met Ms. Azantian at a conference. Would never pitch to her based on her personality. YMMV
