Cold queried Feb 16 2021 and received request for full March 21st.
Got an R&R request from a different agent on Friday April 2nd.
After chat with other agent, messaged to offer revision when it's ready (est. three or four weeks), as the R&R is non-exclusive.
She replied quickly with a friendly message saying to send it on when ready.
Thought I'd note this as R&Rs are a strange beast and people seem curious about how they go.

At this point I hope I sent it to the correct email because I found two different emails associated with her name AND literary agency. So, if I sent it to an incorrect email or a fraud email I'm going to be heartbroken. I sent it to the email that was posted on her website, but manuscript wishlist (and on here) is a different one. Best of luck to you all!

I'm not sure if I should've marked this as a CNR or not, but I emailed her saying I'm withdrawing to participate in Pitch Wars.
Eventually got an email saying she missed my other query but I should send the revision after Pitch Wars

Got an auto reply that she was closed to queries in December. On 12/8/2020, she emailed me that although closed, she was "intrigued" and would read the 50 pages submitted and get back to me.

@karthi1158, I included the biographical note as a part of the query--just the usual thing of where I'm based/any writing courses etc. Then the 50 pages and synopsis in one word document that I attached! I haven't heard back from her yet, though :)
