EQ: 5/15/19 (the morning her queries opened) - 79k novel pitched as domestic suspense
FR: 5/15/19
Sent full: 5/16/19
R&R: 5/23/19 (excellent suggestions)

Did suggested edits and more. Resubmitted full on 9/5/19.

Had not heard from her on 10/2/19, but she'd had it less than a month. I received an offer from another agent on 10/2/19--an agent I wanted to work with no matter what. I accepted and let Alice know. She was very gracious and indicated that she would have liked the opportunity to make an offer, but understood. She even emailed me a warm congratulations later when she saw that my novel had sold.

P.S. @moxleyhood - I received receipt confirmations from Alice on the fulls I sent her, but not on the opening query

Hi! Folks who have sent a full to Alice in the last few months, did you receive a confirmation of receipt from her, or did you just go by the automatic message from her email or the online form?

FQ 9/7/2019 (#Pitmad request)
ER 9/10/2019 (not right for her list, which didn't surprise me too much given her preferences listed on MSWL, but figured worth a shot given the #Pitmad like).

@thephrygian, sorry to hear that--as much as we talk about earning our stripes via rejections, it doesn't make it any easier, especially when you were in limbo for so long. :( At least it's a clear answer rather than a lingering question mark, I guess. Good luck with your other queries!

Thanks for the tip, Kristen, but check the dates. I've been waiting for over a year.

@ moxleyhood: I did nudge a couple times, via Twitter (when she's closed to queries, the emails bounce). As recently as a few days ago, which ultimately resulted in a rejection today.
