I totally thought she'd be too busy right now to look at a query floating in right before she closed for awhile, but I guess not!

She tweeted about some "exciting life stuff" to come and is closing to queries on Oct 15th. If the stuff is so exciting, will she have time to properly rep new MS? Saving her for later.

ER, revise & resubmit based off query + pages. Extensive, useful feedback, wished me all the very best even if I don't R&R, said she'll be rooting for me from the sidelines: 08/18/18
Requeried: 08/29/18
FR (!!!!): 09/07/18, uploaded immediately
ER: 9/14/18 Personalized, but didn't mention what she didn't like - just the things she did, and ultimately she really liked it but didn't "love" it enough. :(

I wish this had turned out differently because she seems so nice! She complimented me on the story and my female protagonist and then said the following:

I really think this is such a strong manuscript, you will find an agent who is insanely passionate about this story and will be its best advocate. I'm sorry that isn't me, but please know I will be cheering you on from the sidelines.

Super nice!
