EQ: 10/30, I sent a partial after making revisions we discussed at a conference
ER-11/20, she says the revisions are taking a story’s in a direction that’s even further than what she imagined, so she thinks she’s not the right reader for the story. Not sure if she just straight up isn’t a good match for me, or if these revisions are really off base. I can only hope Kate’s the sort of agent who would have said what the problem is if it was really something else. Wish everyone else the best of luck!

She tweeted that she's catching up on reading a bunch of requested material today, and posted a picture of her list on instagram. Bestseller1980, wanna check it out?

I have my fingers crossed for you!

I also sent her a partial, on the 10/30 after I met her at a conference. I think mind is "SCBWI LA 2017." We're in the same boat!

@ravenlucrecia--Thanks for the heads up! I think mine might be the "Requested Material" third from the bottom. Hopefully the partial request turns into a full!
