Ms. Burt wrote a lovely personalized note of feedback when responding even though she did not make an offer. She is generous with her time and insights.

ER: 2/23/17 With offer for R&R and some truly apropos feedback. I kinda felt some passion from Madelyn in her email, and her edits were spot-on. She'll be the first to receive my overhauled MS, and hopefully something comes of it. :D
R&R 12/3/18: MS finally finished and out on sub with two other agents this week. Finally! Hopefully some of these cool cats are interested!
