Partial request: 8/11/17
Sent 8/13/17 (I had a guest visiting so I would have sent it the same day, but was busy!).
ER: Helpful comments on what wasn't working for her. Interestingly, one of the comments was in direct opposition to another one I've heard (dialog not working vs. is awesome!).

upmarket fiction with speculative elements. I saw her during her agent author session at the Willamette Writers conference. I also spoke with her for a few minutes after that when I ran into her. Seems like a pretty forthright and direct person (I like that). Hoping she likes this project, but if not, I have another one that is almost finished.

I met Dawn Frederick at a cocktail party at the DFW Writers Workshop. I pitched my idea to her, and she was very friendly and put me at ease. I've also heard great things about her from everyone who's ever worked with her.

"Thanks so much, Amanda! I fear I will regret this, but I’m going to step aside on this. I do appreciate the consideration either way. Best, Dawn"
At least she was nice about it :)

ER 11/10 with notes. The notes were helpful, the most detailed I've gotten especially for a partial, but also completely contradictory to the other feedback.
