Liked everything about the concept, but it was a little outside what she handled. She was engaging and helpful.

Had full for about 5 months. Nice enough rejection, no real feedback to speak of, just "didn't connect" enough.

FR: 1/24/18

5/15/18: Notified her I received an R&R from another agent, and would she like to read the revised version.
7/3/18: Notified her via email that I received an R&R and, subsequently, completed.
9/13/18: Rec'd email from Victoria that she'd sent me a rejection in January but it hadn't gotten to me. She is very nice.

She's had my full ms over 6 months and didn't respond to a nudge. I'm closing this one out. :/

Update: I'd closed this out after 2 months, until she sent a request yesterday, apologizing for the delay.

EQ 6/24/16
FR 8/9/16
At the time she requested, I was working on an R&R and she agreed to wait for the revised version.
Revision sent 2/22/17
Another revision sent after a new R&R 1/14/18
She replied on 1/16/18 with a very kind/apologetic response saying she'll have an answer for me by the end of the month. I feel bad when agents feel bad about long response times, especially newer agents who much have SO much on their plate besides reading slush. But I do think this might point to her planning on getting through all the full requests eventually :)
Kind personalized rejection 1/26. Good luck everyone!

I think I may CNR this :/ bummer because she was a dream agent but it's almost 9 months since she's had my revised full and crickets to any nudge sent unfortunately. I wish everyone better luck!
