97k Thriller. This was a #pitmad request. Amanda liked my pitch and asked for the full 1 day after I queried. She passed after 2 weeks, giving brief, personalized feedback. I was kind of surprised she requested since she doesn't seem to represent thriller.

#PitMad request 9/7/17
FR: 9/8/17
Rejection: 1/30/18

Though ultimately the answer was no, Amanda replied with a ton of positive feedback on my manuscript, as well as a detailed and thorough response on what she felt could be improved. I'm thrilled with the suggestions and I'm excited to tackle them in another draft! She also invited me to resubmit new drafts or other manuscripts in the future.

Hi Patrick. Is this agent still closed to queries? I saw her tweets for #MSWL. Thanks.
