Queried Brenna English-Loeb on June 7, 2019.
Full request: August 28, 2019.
Sept. 12, 2019: Message from Brenna indicating that the MS had been shared and loved by both agents.
Offer of representation by both agents: September 16, 2019
Offer accepted September 23, 2019!

(Patrick, just so you won't let me note the correct date on the offer. It will only allow me to record it for today.)
Update...I see what I did...I recorded the date wrong earlier in the process. I fixed it! Thank you!

Cappycat, the system won't let you select a date in the future, and it won't let you select a date that comes before the last step you recorded. But if you're trying to change it and it is close to midnight, there may be some timezone discrepancy that keeps you from selecting the current day.
