Yeah, it's a rejection, but seriously she got back to me within a day! I can't be mad at that.

Full Request: 3/27/2019 (sent same day)
R&R: 4/22/2019 (phonecall on 4/26/2019)

(On 05/06/2019, another agent offers me representation. I e-mail status updates to everyone else; hadn't had time even to *start* working on Kat's R&R. She replies within an hour to set up a phone call.)
Offer of rep: 05/08/2019
05/17/2019: after a grueling week of stressful decision-making, I accept another agent's offer and decline Kat's. (She replies very graciously and wishes me luck, hopes to see my book in stores, and says she'll track me down on Twitter so she can keep an eye on my career!)

Y'all, Kat is freaking awesome. She's friendly but professional, enthusiastic but not "gush-y," and is able to articulate specifically what things she loves and what things she thinks need to change. She's sincerely committed to her agenting career, and to doing it *well* -- she's building her list slowly and deliberately with a focus on stories/voices she wants to champion, not taking on projects just because "she needs the clients" or something. Clients who sign with her right now will, I think, get a ton of personal attention from an up-and-comer agent with great instincts who's in this game for the long haul. 10/10 would recommend Kat. If you have any questions, feel free to message me. Good luck everyone!!
