EQ: August 25th
PR: Sept 3.
Requested first three chapters and a synopsis

September 7th: Requested full manuscript and asked a few questions about my previous agent situation (I was repped previously).
Sent full on September 9th.
Thriller/ 82k

UPDATE 2: 10/23- Received a message to set up a call for next week. Fingers crossed this is an offer for rep and not just a "fix these things and resubmit." If an agent asks to set up a call is that usually indicative of an offer? It's been so long since I've done this I sincerely forget how it works.

Offer of rep- 10/28/2020 Lane is super knowledgable and is extremely passionate about his job and his clients.
Accepted offer of rep: 11/3/2020. I'm really excited to work with Lane. He's enthusiastic and positive and exactly what I need after my last agent fiasco.

I queried Mr. Heymont on 8/31/20 and got a response on 9/29/20 that he forwarded my inquiry to Renae Moore, because this may be a "better match." Appreciate the pass-along!
