PR: 6/9/17 Letter from assistant requesting a partial for further review.
FR: 6/20/17 Sent same day.
Nudge per e-mail permissions: 7/20/17
Reply from assistant: 7/22/17 - She says Caryn is reading it now and will be in contact soon, and thanks me for my patience. So far I've been nothing but impressed with their politeness and prompt responses.
Form Rejection: 7/25/17 - No feedback other than Ms. Wiseman didn't feel strongly enough to represent the material. This seems to be common with this particular revision, so I'm not sure whether to revise or continue querying.

Either way, Ms. Wiseman and Ms. Nolen are polite and professional and I definitely intend to keep them in mind for future work.

Request for first 50 pgs from her assistant Allison Nolen 4/3/16. Letter says to give her at least 4 weeks to respond.

4/21/16 Nudged with offer. She responded within the hour thanking me for letting her know and she'd take a look at it and get back to me before the deadline.
4/27/16: Passed didn't connect with it.

I met Caryn Wiseman at a workshop and was able to participate in her critique group. She's wonderful! Very nice personalized rejection.

It turns out Caryn never received my MS! She dropped everything to read it on the spot last night. After reading the whole thing and making some very nice comments, she ended up stepping aside as she wasn't "head over heels in love." What a class act. Anyone would be lucky to work with her!
