4/9/2023 - sent “pre query”, because my story was under the minimum word count, and that was the proper procedure.
5/3/3023 - email from agent asking for the formal query package.
6/25/2023 - request of zoom meeting by agent to discuss manuscript.
6/27/2023 - offer of representation
6/30/2023 - signed contract for representation.

Dawn was very professional throughout the entire process. Her responses were quick, when I compare to other agencies.
