Sent reminder email that deadline is 8/17/17. I know she's been busy with her clients, so I'm not sure if I'll hear back from her. Either way, she seems nice.
CNR: 8/17 I'm sure she's crazy busy. It's nice that she considered my work, and she seems great. Good luck to anyone who signs with her!

"Thanks for your patience while I read this and thank you so much for sharing your manuscript with me. I enjoyed the read – you’ve got a great voice here, and I really liked the concept, but in the end, I just didn’t fall enough in love to be able to offer representation. But of course, these things are a matter of personal taste. With regrets, I’m going to have to pass."

Seems like a great agent. :D Good luck everyone!

Rena used to be my co-agent along with Deborah a few years back and I only left them because I thought I quit writing. She's amazing and well-connected and I believe she has the ability to comprehend diverse voices better than some agents because of her unique background (that she isn't US based and is bilingual). She's also a wonderful and sensitive person on top of that and is extremely supportive of her writers! I warmly recommend her.
