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

Sent requested query from #DVPit on 10/17. Full request on 10/18. Sent on 10/21. Email of receipt on 10/22. She seems like a smart and thoughtful agent with lots of publishing insight, so I'm excited to hear what she thinks.

UPDATE: Rejected my full after about a 3 week wait. I am, of course, disappointed, but I appreciate the fairly quick response as well as her feedback. She seems like a great person with whom to work!
