Met Rachel at the Willamette Writer's Conference 8/2018 and she requested my full.

Submitted full manuscript 9/4/2018
Informed her of an offer of rep in November, then a week later told her I wasn't accepting the agent's offer and to disregard it. Received an email in response 12/11/18 assuring me that my full was still in the queue to be read.

5/31/18 FR, materials sent same day
I had closed this as a CNR back in April and was completely disoriented when the FR came. Got a very speedy affirmation that the materials had been received. So, for those waiting for a reply, don't lose hope!
