Pass 3/13/2020
3/7/2020, I got an email from her saying she was about to start reading the full, sorry it's taken a while, but she wanted to just check that I hadn't already gotten representation. I haven't & thought it kind of cool that she asked since I've seen some agents tweet about how much it sucks to have finally read a full only to find out the writer already got an agent without telling them. Also, I took the chance at asking Marlo if I could upload the most current version as a change had been made since Dec. & she said absolutely! Fingers crossed that she'll like the story.

From my interactions with her, Marlo seems like she'd be wonderful to work with. Good luck to everyone querying her!

Offer of rep! 11/14/19 Now I have decisions to make!
Marlo brought some great things to the table, and I think she'd do a great job, but I ultimately ended up accepting my first offer with a different agent. 11/26/19

I wasn't going to post, but I think querying writers should know about agents who send form rejections to full requests. Marlo requested my full within 3 hours of receiving the query, and a few months later she sent a form rejection, no feedback, nothing. Were she an agent with bestselling clients and a full list, I might understand. But when I queried her, she'd been an agent for less than a few months. This is unacceptable, in my opinion. Anyway, make your own judgement, but had I known, I certainly would have queried a different agent at this agency.
