Email query: 02/06/22
Reply from agent: She's excited to read.
Nudge, it's been 11 weeks: 04/26/22
Reply from agent on 04/28/22: She wants to work with me on my last rom-com to see if we can still sell it, but is on the fence about this one & asked to set up a call to discuss in detail. I emailed her back right away.
Update: 05/03/22, I haven't heard back yet with the call timings.
Nudge to confirm she's still interested: 05/06/22
CNR: 05/14/22. I can only assume she changed her mind since she never responded to my email from 4/28. I'm heartbroken.

(I had previously received an offer of rep from Rena on my last rom-com, but I chose to go with a different agent with whom I've now parted ways.)

I'm so nervous. I queried her 4 years ago with this ms, she requested a partial, then declined with feedback. I took a (long) break, revised significantly, and have queried again.
