9/19 Scheduled a 10 minute consultation with her via Manuscript Academy. She gave me some great advice on my query and also asked for the full. Super nice and helpful!

ER: 6/14/17 So this was weird. 10 min phone call via Manuscript academy. I had forgotten I queried her when I booked the apt... Got some feedback, but it felt weird and I felt really embarrassed afterwards. She said the pitch/concept memorable though?
