Thao Le passed my query to Jessica because what she's looking for is more in line with my MS. She requested my full!! Yay :)

Thao Le passed me onto Jessica due to similarities in my revised manuscript and Thao's client's work, I'm really excited, Jessica seems great, fun and I write mostly speculative romance!

Confirmation of Full Manuscript: 2/24

Eagerly waiting!

Update 3/20: Checked in to see if I was at the 1/27 mark, as I submitted to Thao on 1/3, Jessica responded immediately and said I was still in the queue. So excited but nervous - she would be amazing!

Nudged with offer of publication: 3/2
Offer of rep: 3/3
Ultimately, I turned down the offer & signed with another agent. Jessica was excited and enthusiastic on the phone, and sounds like a lovely person.
