I guess if an agent is interest in the premise, that doesn't expire. =)

EQ: 3/25/18 (request associated with an online pitch contest = query + one-page synopsis + first 10 pgs)
Full request: 4/6 (she was aware I had pitched a WIP so we agreed to touch base once I'd finished and polished)
Full request sent: 9/10
Nudge with offer: 9/26
Offer: 10/9

I ultimately accepted an offer from another agent, but Hannah did not make this an easy decision because she's the definition of professionalism. I can say with confidence that her clients have a dedicated, skilled advocate in her, and I ended up having to make a judgment call that was more gut feeling than based on anything quantifiable. I have so much respect for Hannah, her clients, and the works she represents.

Friendly and professional. I appreciate that she wrote back to confirm that she received the manuscript (not always a given when it comes to agents, right?). Note: she also requested a full synopsis.

Did everyone with a manuscript out with Hannah get a confirmation of receipt? She considered my last book and confirmed receipt the next day. I sent her the full right after she requested Fri and I haven’t heard anything yet confirming she got it. Should I wait or email to make sure?

Never mind. She confirmed receipt yesterday:)

ER: 10/08/18, personalized. Isn't a fan of stories told through 'ancillary materials' (my story is split between the protagonist's first-person POV and her YouTube vlogs). So if any of you have stories told via diary entries, vlogs, blogs or texts, she might not be the right fit!

So nice to get an acknowledgment of receipt! I'm not invisible on the internet after all!

Per Twitter (and website), she is open to queries again. I previously queried her in 2017 with another MS and got a full request that led to an R&R. I didn't feel that the revisions I did were substantial enough to send back to her, so I closed that out. Now querying her with a new project.
