ER: 3/7

Personalized (and yet form) rejection with a generic and subjective reason for passing that's also complete opposite to what other agents have said, yet encouraging on me to keep on querying and try her again one day. Jen is awesome, though! One of the nicest and most caring agents I've ever met, classy, professional, and pretty cool. No regrets!

PR: 2/12/18
I'm assuming she rejected the initial query then later saw my email asking if I could re-send and went based on that? Either way, so happy!

She usually responds with rejections, but it's been 2 months so I'm going to close this one out (and she said she's current through 10/20...so I'm just going to assume this one is a no-go unless I hear otherwise).
Update: Surprise PR on 1/17! First 50pg sent same day. If you're still waiting to hear from Jennifer, take heart...she's catching up on a backlog of queries.
