EQ: 2/17/16 (Queried Michelle Johnson, but all responses were from Amanda)
FR and Sent: 2/18/16
R&R Request: 3/4/16
Revised manuscript sent: 7/14/16
8/25/16 - MS was chosen for Pitch Wars. Emailed that I will be revising. She's agreed to wait and is "excited" to see revised version.
11/14/16 - Pitch Wars version sent
12/2/16 - Offer of Representation!

I ended up with multiple offers & went with another agent, but Amanda is a great agent and it was a tough choice.

Interesting coincidence? After 5 weeks, I haven't heard back from Ms. Jain, but I received a phone call and an email from a web designer whose surname is also Jain, offering me her services. Sigh.
