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.


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

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.
