BillGinTexas, Victoria Marini is another agent at IGLA. Since they have a "sub to one agent within our agency" rule here, most likely Miriam passed along your query to Victoria whom she must've thought was a better fit.

On 4/14, Miriam requested my first 3 chapters at RT Booklover's Convention after I pitched to her. I'm sad to say I'm closing this out because not only have I never had a confirmation she received the 3 chapters, I nudged politely over the summer and still have heard nothing.

It's a little frustrating to meet someone face-to-face and *still* get no response from requested material.
