This definitely took forever, but she was nice in her rejection and took the time to personalize a bit.

I can't tell if Sarah is just really behind or not requesting from anyone. It's been so long since (QT at least) showed any responses that aren't CNRs!

Well, apparently she was only taken by the first three chapters as I never heard from her again. This was my fault. I have two books and I was so nervous that I sent her the wrong word count, which probably turned her off, too.

Then I got some really sweet revision notes from an agent and when I emailed Sarah to ask if I could send them to her, nothing.

Sighs. The revisions were so good too. I think she would have fallen in love with the newest version, which bumped the word count to 70K. And I was able to fix some errors my critique partner and I noticed way too late. But in this profession, we only get one shot and I blew it with this one. So I’ll take the L.
