Oh wow I forgot to post when I submitted a query for this agent. Nevertheless I just received a rejection on 2/6/2019. She told me that she needs to be selective which is why she is rejecting it.

TONS of notes with invitation for an R&R: 9/11/18
Submitted revised manuscript, screaming as I pressed the send button: 10/26/18
Very kind rejection, along with very lengthy notes on what did work for her, but what didn't, and what I could still change to improve the manuscript. If this manuscript doesn't go anywhere, Samantha will be first on my query list for next time! This all just proved how much I'd love to work with her.
