Recently on Twitter she was asking editors if it's okay to sub with the December break coming up. As you say, everyone's got to start somewhere, and better to ask than not know, but isn't this the sort of thing the senior agents in her agency should be providing guidance on?

She sounds nice enough, but I think I'll steer clear until she gets some more mileage under her agent-shoes.
