EQ: Dec 6/22
Partial Request: Jan 3/23
Nudged to offer revised MS: Feb 14/23
Replied to nudge confirming interest in revision: Feb 26/23 (I sent the revision straight away)

UPDATE: I nudged to offer the substantially revised MS. She works very gradually through her submissions so I don't expect to hear back any time soon. ALA is super cool and it's exciting to have captured Jennifer's interest.
UPDATE: Oh man I have zero chill. Didn't expect for her to reply to the nudge so soon, so it's a pleasant surprise. Of course, I'm gonna read into it too much and worry, bc she takes her time on projects she ends up pursuing, and quick replies from her usually lead towards a pass. Either way, I'm still elated to have captured her interest. I don't know if I believe in "dream agents" per se--I feel like my dream agent would simply be whoever believed enough in my MS to offer on it--but I truly admire many authors on the ALA roster. It's my top agency in terms of long-term career fit.

Jennifer is a really good agent and I’d hoped, but I’d also known somehow that it wouldn’t work out between us :) Disappointed but we move!

I haven’t seen anything yet. I assume she will reply, but I know she had gallstones right after Christmas (I don’t know what her December schedule was but I just decided to not count December in my wait count as so many agents went on holiday) and just had gallbladder surgery last week. As someone who’s been there, I’m not expecting anything for a few more weeks from her while she recovers and catches up

Does anyone know if she's responding to DVpit queries without an offer to counter? I queried back in October and nudged with a revision a few weeks ago and haven't heard anything at all.

Really warm and encouraging response from her to a separate project back in 2015.
Have just read that she is closed to queries, but still accepts things from her MSWL, so... maybe? Sending her my newest with my heart in my mouth....
