On 11/08/17 I saw on her website that no response within 3 weeks might mean she didn't get it, so I resent the whole thing (with improvements, so it's a win, I guess?). Hoping this wasn't a Bad Move.

FR: 05/12/17 (sent same day)
Nudged: 07/2/17 - {Asked for her if she would wait to read due to R&R request (non-exclusive) from another agent. She said yes.}
R&R resubmitted: 09/05/17
Rejected on 11/02. She said she found the writing on the page very strong but is having a harder time marketing YA fantasy these days and didn't have a strong vision on how to position the story to editors.

ER: 10/31/17 (Why does it always hurt more on holidays!)
The sweetest rejection, honestly. Said she had set the query aside because she wanted to review it more closely and apologized for taking so long to get back (27 days isn't even that long, honestly). Said the query and sample were well-written with a strong concept, just not what she's looking for right now. So, so sweet. Really bummed because she's a dream agent!

@varshadinesh - Thanks for letting me know. I'm just wondering because I'm worried whether my submission was uploaded successfully or not.

Hey all. When you sent your full MS via the Nelson Lit Submissions portal, did you get an automated email saying it was successfully uploaded to the database? Or not?
