Submitted 6/4 after she liked my #pitmad tweet. She requested the full manuscript right away. She passed on my traditional mystery, but her comments were helpful and encouraging. Not a standard rejection letter. Would enjoy working with her. Will consider her recommendations.

During an in-person meeting at the HNS Conference, Melissa Danaczko engaged in lively inquiry regarding my debut novel. She asked for a full. She responded to emails within a day. Though she did not move forward, she did send a detailed response and thoughts. A delightful person who treats people well. Anyone who wins her attention and agency will be well served! Catherine M
