9/13/23 - submitted 450-word PB manuscript (emotional piece)
9/14/23 - received edits and a request for more work
9/15/23 - not interested in the second PB sent (rhyming & silly - very different from the first) but continues to send me edits on the first project. Not sure what that means but I’ve revised and sent back to her with my fingers crossed.
9/21 - offer of rep!

5/28/23: email query YA fantasy (murder mystery w/ dragons) 86k
5/29/23: partial request!

This one surprises me, given that Mary rarely represents YA or fantasy. I only queried because I'm a fellow Minnesotan and my book broadly fits her MSWL. We'll see!

Update 7/1/23: kind and personalized rejection
