Just heard back from Rena from #SFFPit saying she was backlogged in replying. Said she loved the concept and writing but didn't fall in love. Very kind rejection.

Thanks for the opportunity to consider your work. I don’t think I’m the right agent for this, but I wish you the best of luck and keep querying! Maybe another agent will feel differently.

10/6 EQ with first fifty pages.
10/12 emailed me to ask for fifty pages in Word doc rather than pasted in email. Sent.
10/13 ER - Kind email stating she read it quickly as she was very interested, but isn't head-over-heels in love with it.
12/19 signed with another agent

I appreciate the quick communication and her kind words!

UPDATE: I got a ER today from Rena. She requested the first 50 pages on October 31st.
She said:
