She shared some brief notes of what she enjoyed about my sample pages in her response email. That was a surprise and a really sweet personal addition!

Ms. Goetz sent back a nice response (even though ultimately she decided to pass) highlighting things she enjoyed and what prevented her from committing to the project. Very helpful feedback.

Adria confirmed receipt and indicated she has several mss to read before mine; might not hear from her until October/November. So nice of her to let me know!
ER: 10/31 - not what she's looking for. Ugh, I could cry.

Rejection: 6-19-17 It was actually personalized with a specific comment about the book. This may be the first time this has happened to me outside a contest or twitter event. :-)
