When I checked my Sent folder in Gmail, it shows the recipient as Alison Fargis, even though I copied Madelyn’s name with the agency’s email into my contact list. I did put Madelyn’s name in the subject line, though, and addressed the letter to her, so hopefully it will get to her. I had queried Alison a year or so ago with a different project and forgot that her name would be attached to the agency’s email in my contacts list. Rats! The bleepety-bleep Auto feature strikes again. I guess they’ll figure out what happened. Seems like sending a second email to explain would just be confusing and/or a nuisance. But something to remember if you have queried other Stonesong agents in the past.

ER: August 23, 2017. She was complimentary and also said what she didn't like, which I REALLY appreciate. First time I've been given indepth feedback.

I had CNR'ed her, but then I got the request. :)
