Spoke with her at length prior to accepting offer of representation. She is very knowledgeable and insightful and had obviously read the MS carefully. Really looking forward to working with her!

I got a confirmation on a partial request, but the request was from Stacey on her behalf from NoQS. Even though I sent the pages to Amanda, it was Stacey who sent the confirmation saying she'd pass it along and Amanda would be in touch. It was sent 10/31 and I've heard nothing since.

@orangrila Update: I nudged again yesterday, and I heard back from Amanda today. She ultimately found it too young a story for her to represent, but she did respond kindly.

@orangrila Sadly, I have not. I may close this out soon. Sigh.

Hi @blanghinrichs, Wondering if you received a response to your Jan 18 nudge? Thanks!

The full ms. request I received in October said "I will do my best to get back to you in a timely fashion, but please let me know if you receive offers of representation from other agencies in the meantime." It certainly sounds as though she intends to respond on the full. I think that a polite nudge is in order after several months.

I think she is mbowman. I am one of them from October and she has signed four clients already. think she only wants a nudge if you get an offer of rep!

It looks like she hasn't responded to any of the fulls she has. I hope she isn't a no-response on fulls agent.
