Requested my picture book manuscript via Dvpit in October
EQ with requested manuscript: 1/12/2021 (QT shows w/in a few weeks she skipped over my submission and responded to others - rej. and req)
Nudge with offer of representation: 2/26/21
Request for additional manuscript: 3/3/2021: "Congratulations on the offer, and thank you for letting me know. [TITLE] is funny and clever. Would you please send me the other manuscript that received the offer so I can take a look?"

I sent over two more manuscripts and told her each received an offer of rep from a diff agent. I asked if she could respond by [specific date - 10 days from date of emailing her] with a decision. No response. I've since accepted one of the other offers.

@Kritter: What makes you say that? (If it was a private interaction, don't feel like you have to share, I'm just wondering.)

@Kritter: I didn't get a confirmation email either (but I did get a full request after two weeks, so maybe she just isn't reading her queries in order or has a maybe pile as you suggested)

Kritter, I also did not get a confirmation after I sent my query. I queried Jul 1 and haven't heard anything yet either.
