EQ 3/2
I noticed on here that she usually replies quickly. I was worried my query went to spam filter.
RE-Queried on 3/26 (worried I'd be annoying).
She replied 3.27 at 5 am saying she had sent me a Full Request and never heard back.
I went into my spam. Sure enough, there it was on the DAY she said she sent it, and I HAVE NO Idea why it went to spam, or why I followed up with her, except I decided to try it. SO, bizarre.
FR 3/10
I sent it yesterday, 3/27

Crazy town. I'll update with what she says later. Mine's a 66,000 word YA contemporary suspense.

UPDATE: She just rejected 4/17, but it was a very long rejection. She said my prose was beautiful, better than many authors she's signed. She said my narrative pacing was perfect and the plot moved great. She said unfortunately, for reasons she can't put her finger on, she didn't connect with the two main characters and so she was going to pass but she was sure another agent would snap up my book... Uh. Okay. I'll admit. This was depressing. SIX rejections on fulls now, with 12 more agents still reading. I wish this was all easier.

Entered Sun vs Snow with a revised manuscript, and Andrea requested the full. So excited she's giving it a second shot!

ER: 04/17/18
Kind, personalized rejection with her reasons for passing.
