Query sent on January 10th, 2020.
Personal rejection with feedback!!! on the query and five pages on February 23, 2020. With an offer to resubmit if revised.

To say I was shocked to receive a detailed note is to say nothing. I've had three full requests, one of which an agent had had for almost six months, and neither of those agents provided anything but the same form rejection on the FULL. Ms. Julie Gwinn seems wonderful and kind. Out of dozens of agents, she's the only person who's provided actual feedback. I would definitely recommend submitting to her.

PR: 5/24/19 - Response came from Ms. Gwinn. Said she liked the concept and story but wasn't in love with the writing. No specifics on what she didn't like, just a suggestion to hone my craft more. Query included the first chapter.

I originally queried Julie on February 14. On February 17, she responded, wanting more information about me and the project. She did not ask for a partial. I have nudged a few times since then but have yet to receive any sort of response. Has anyone else experienced this?

EQ 8/21/17 (Passed after two nudges on Venom's partial R&R--not right agent for it, no other feedback on partial R&R. But she said I can query her again in a few months.)
Updated: 8/29/17 (Upgraded to a full R&R with feedback coming in a few days. She must've changed her mind or mistaken me for somebody else last week. I plan to requery her in two months, since I'm already halfway through my full revisions. )
Full R&R sent on 9/17/18.
Update: ER 3/8/19--I really hated it to close it as a R after all this time. Two-and-a-half weeks ago, I nudged her since I haven't heard her from a long time. She said it wouldn't work since she had trouble placing a client's work which was similar than Venom. I didn't believe her. She said it was a no for my idea but not for me and that she would look at my synopsis for my other three WIPs I've mentioned to her in 2017. But she never got back to me when I nudged her on Thursday. It's a R in a way as "not a good fit", since my beta said her response was strange.
