Just a really nice, and personal, rejection - I've had lots of back and forths with her over the years, and she said some very nice stuff about the work.
She is always top of my list to query. But haven't got to an offer yet.

I sent this agent an EQ, and she responded rather quickly with a request for a partial.
I provided the material that same day.
After three months, I sent a polite follow-up.
That was almost a year ago, and no response from her.

While I understand that agents are under no obligation to respond to queries, it's unprofessional and inconsiderate to ignore requested material. It doesn't take much effort to send a quick e-mail. Agents rightfully expect respect from authors. We deserve the same.

This was an odd one - nudged a couple of times as Alexis had shown interest in previous project. Sent the nudge from two different emails... finally heard that she never saw it. (Nice of her to respond).
Then she rejected today, said I was talented, but she didn't fall in love with it.

On 9/30/14, I queried Alexis with Chain Reaction. Today I've heard back with her with a R--not a right fit. Accidentally, I also queried Monika Woods with the same query last month and hope to hear back from her soon.

Today I've heard back from Alexis Hurley. It's a pass. Not a right fit. Back in 2011, she did give me a R. I'll try Allison Hunter next month with a requery.
