This agent took a while to get back and it was a pass from her, but with a personalized note and helpful feedback.

Submitted Oct. 8 and almost CNR months ago but she posted on Twitter that she always responds. I DM'd her and she said she saw me in her queue. Today I read on Manuscript Wishlist where she said to nudge her after 90 days. I messaged her yesterday and offered fresh pages. She responded by sending me a private link to query her. Fingers crossed. She seems like a good person to work with.
