@Catsamoa79 - Thank you so much! I wanted to make sure. :)

jessikalindst - Since she is using Query manager, rather than email, I assumed that one should upload the 3 chapters, even for fiction. That is what I did and the submission went through. It took 157 days to get my rejection in a form letter via Query Manager.

I have a question in regards to the submission page. So, in the guidelines it says for fiction to paste the text in the body of the email but then there's the option to upload a file which is for non-fiction but the option is required and as everyone knows, if a required field is left out, then it won't take the submission. Should I just upload the first couple chapters of my book even though it's fiction?

In Person Request at a Conference: 4/29/19

I'm going to close this one out now (5/13/2020). Over a year, with multiple nudges, and I never heard anything from this agent. Her assistant at the conference was super nice though.

She has only responded to 6 queries in the past 6 months. Has hardly replied to any since the start of the year, though she was briefly open for queries in January.

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
