I'm in the middle of revising for an R&R for another agent, so I asked if Jessica would wait until the revision was done to read the full. She said yes, so I plan to send the revised ms when it's ready.

3/17/17 R&R and phone call
intensive collaborative R&R w/ Jess and her assistant to 6/17 when she left for maternity leave
9/8/17 revised submission when she returned to work
10/10/17 lovely and heartfelt pass :-((
BUT, the book is hugely improved after another few months of revising and I'm back on submission again 2/2018--and out with 5 agents
Any writer would be lucky to work with Jess, she's incredibly insightful and generous; ultimately we have slightly different visions for the book that could only be discovered through this process (for which, obviously, she worked without payment. Wow.)
