CNR 7/20

Update: She liked two of my tweets on 7/25 and said she was curious to read my work. I told her about filing my query as a CNR and she said she was running behind on her queries. Fingers crossed - she seems very nice, and lots of positive comments from others.

Update to my 7/30/18 comment.
Note, I was a DS client who found out on 7/25 that Lupine Grove was being closed.

Reply: 7/27 to set up phone interview
8/3/18 - phone interview and offer made. We talked for an hour and a half. I had prepared 30 questions to discuss based on my experiences with DS. I had a keen understanding of what I didn't want in an agent. JS addressed/answered all my questions without me even having to ask. She was enthusiastic, articulate, and very professional. She also wasn't pushy. She recommended I take 2 weeks and talk to other agents and also some client references. Some agents don't like when you ask for references, so this was a great sign.
8/5/18 - talked with three clients and two editors who all had glowing things to say about ABLA and JS
8/6/18 - accepted offer of representation and she immediately got to work on editorial comments for two PB manuscripts, directions for MG manuscript and establishing timelines for project tasks. I had her comments within 48 hours for a PB I planned to submit for a conference critique next month.

A+ for communication
A+ for organization
A+ for professionalism

DS Client open inbox query
Received response within 24 hours requesting manuscript. Sent PB & MG and received response to set up phone chat. Impressed by response time to emails and communication style, thus far.

Just saw this on the ABLA website, no idea how I missed this before: "Remember, a "no" from one of our agents is a "no" from the agency as a whole. If your work is rejected, please do not resubmit the same work to another agent at our agency."

I queried Jennifer after she liked my pitch on #PitMad. She almost immediately requested the full and I sent it off. Within four weeks, I had a nicely worded rejection, though I didn't get the feeling she'd read the entire MS.

Six months later, I had a completely reworked version. On Twitter, she repeatedly said she was open to re-queries with reworked versions, so I re-queried, letting her know the substantial changes that had been made. No response. Too bad because she's made several comments on Twitter about a concept she loves and is seeking, and my MS fits that perfectly, but perhaps she was less enchanted with the version she'd read than her rejection made it sound. :)

@hairaplenty search #lupinegrove on Twitter to get the gist - a lot of agents have been trying to help out orphaned clients because of the situation

@mysteryoflife - Just as an FYI, it takes months sometimes before agents/authors are aloud to announce book deals, so for newer agents, it's not always easy to tell if they've actually made sales or not.

Also, I did just find that she's made one picture book sale according to Publishers Marketplace.
