YA Urban Fantasy, 102k words

05.28.19 Query via online form
6.19.19 Full request
6.20.19 Sent full and received confirmation saying I should hear in twelve weeks.
8.14.19 Two months in and I'm nervous as heck! I love her personality on twitter and her transparency about the industry, so signing with her would be a dream!
9.22.19 The twelve weeks have come and gone and I haven’t heard yet. Thinking of nudging!
9.25.19 Received message from Jana saying she is still reviewing the manuscript and will respond by October 8th. (Funny coincidence: I was in the process of typing out my nudge when her message came in.)
10.09.19 No response yet but she tweeted that she hates having to say no to great manuscripts because of market concerns and I’m thinking it might be me because mine is YA urban fantasy—a hard sell right now.

2/14/19 KissPitch request
2/15/19 initial query
3/7/19 full request (I died a little)
4/18/19 questions about what we (it's co-written) are looking for in an agent
5/12/19 R&R
6/29/19 Resubmit
6/30/19 "I look forward to reading it"

According to her twitter, her R&Rs aren't incredibly detailed because people have taken advantage of her free advice and then signed with other agents before, which is completely understandable, I just hope we went in the direction she was looking for.
It's been an up and down process, but only because Jana is one of our top picks. Her advice on twitter and her interaction through emails has been wonderful and we're still holding out hope that this R&R turns out great for everyone.
