She liked my DVPIT pitch, so I sent her my query + first 50 pages on 10-2-17
FR: 10-5-17
MS sent on 10-6-17

Fingers crossed!!! She seems utterly amazing to work with.

10/3: Confirmation, asked to update her if I receive any offers
ER 10/7: Personalized, said I had a great voice and that she really liked the concept, but she didn't fall in love enough to represent it.

rewbooks- I've had a full out to her since April 2nd. I wrote in late June and again in September letting her know I'd revised it but she never responded. I'm getting very close to closing this one out.

Rewbooks, from what I see it might be about 4 months or longer for fulls :) Keep us posted and best of luck to you!

Right now, I think she's watching twitter pitches for #DVpit. She's likely getting a lot of email today.
