DVpit EQ: 04/27/19
Nudge: 05/15/19, others have requested the full -- submission guidelines say to notify them

She seems to request quickly but CNR the rest-- I received the auto-confirmation both times, and this was a DVpit request, so maybe she's just behind on queries? Fingers crossed. She seems like a stand-up agent!

Alice seemed so professional when she requested my full. I was immediately in love with her. Then she didn't respond, though everyone who queried after me were getting responses.

I waited three months before nudging. She completely ignored me. Nudged again then she went on Twitter and wrote about me.

Wow.

I'm never querying her again. NEVER.

I'm always so professional. I treat my writing like my business.

If she had the time to tweet about me, why didn't she use that same energy to write a : sorry, not for me. And then talk about me to colleagues_or friends or ...

Ugh. I can never understand agents who insists on being rude, just because...

EQ: 7/13
FR: 7/14
Offer of Rep: 7/17

Alice is extremely professional, approachable and quite simply, a remarkable agent from an agency with an incredible reputation. Her international sales record on top of the deals she's made in the US speak for themselves. I haven't made my decision yet (there are still 16 agents reading), but she put herself at the top of my list after our phone call.

Update: Accepted Alice's offer on 7/27 and signed the papers today! Couldn't be more thrilled!

Alice is super nice, and this was a difficult decision. We clicked very well and had a similar vision and game plan, but in the end I went with another agent.
