Offer of rep: 9/26
10/10: Accepted offer!

I'm thrilled to get to work with Jordan (and a bit stunned by how fast she offered). It's been a whirlwind past few weeks while I closed out pending queries, but this is official as of yesterday. :)

I just wanted to include an update now that I've worked with Jordan since last year. She is every bit as wonderful of an agent as I'd hoped when I signed with her. Jordan's editorial instincts are spot-on, she listens to my input, and curated a list of editors to sub to based on her wealth of industry knowledge. Since my book sold, she's kept up with how my revision is going and offered support and insight into the next steps of this process. I couldn't have asked for a better advocate. She's well worth querying if she reps your genre and age category!
