11/15/2019: PR @ a conference pitch; she gave instructions to email 50 pgs (specifically requested that there not be a query letter w/ them, though)
11/19/2019: Emailed 50 pages
CNR 4/12/2020
6/17/2020 I received an email from her with apologies that she hadn't been able to read the partial yet but was going to now and was just checking first that it's still available. As I haven't been offered rep, I replied that I'd still love for her to consider it.
7/17/2020 I received an email from Vicki that she'd shared my sample pages with Kate Foster (new to Storm), who will take a look at the full MS. (I marked this as a rejection and made new entry made for Kate Foster)

Received the rejection 316 days after submitting the query. At least she got back to me and she made some very helpful suggestions.

Wow, was very surprised to receive a response from her today. EQ 2/6/17, ER 10/9/18. The letter was nice but still seemed like a form, "Overall, there are many elements I’ve enjoyed. After further consideration, though, I’m not finding myself as passionate as I’d like to move forward to the next step."

Said she took so long to reply and that she wasn't sure if this manuscript was still available. She enjoyed it, but as she's closed to submissions at her new agency she will pass. (not passionate as she'd like) She suggested that I send her anything else that I have when she opens.

Long story on this one. I emailed Victoria in early May to ask if she would be willing to read a revised version of a YA manuscript of mine that she had previously considered. She agreed, but asked that I wait until July or August to send it, after she caught up on queries and submissions from before she closed. I sent it on August first and received a rejection with some detailed feedback today. She left it open for me to query her with other manuscripts when she opens up to submissions again. She is a gem and anyone would be lucky to have her as an agent.

Same language as below ("As this is a subjective process, I do encourage you to continue honing your craft as you submit to other agents and editors. I also encourage more feedback from agents and editors before delving into extensive revisions.")

I was going to mark this one closed/no response, but then I saw the message below posted under her profile at Storm Literary Agency:

Previously received submissions . . .

While lots of updates are happening behind the scenes, I’ve closed submissions (except for conferences, events, contests, and/or anything I’ve agreed to remain open for), so that I can respond to everything that I currently have and/or requested. As it has always been important for me to respond to writers, I’d like a chance to do so, before opening submissions again. Anything I've received before March 22, 2018 is now being considered for Storm Literary Agency.
