Does anyone else get a warning about her website? I was going to check and see if she had a 'if you haven't heard back after x days consider it rejected' policy, but I guess from the other comments here she doesn't. (Sent mine out, historical fiction 104,000 words, on 4/30/22.)

I just heard back today August 11 2022 A polite rejection thanking me for my patience. Something must have happened.

I just queried a few days ago. I guess I'll check back in a year or two to see how it went....

My form rejection email was received yesterday - 139 days from my query submission. After reading the comments below, I guess I am not alone with the "shaking of my head", but I ask, why do they even bother to respond? To alleviate guilt? Just saying...doesn't make a lot of sense and I have been seeing this more and more of late. Thoughts anyone?

I'm with you, @CSDwrites!! WTF?!? Mine was eighteen months, 530 days, from query to form rejection. That's too funny to get mad about (though I am clearly a little miffed at the gall of it)

I don't know why, but after 659 days I received a form rejection. I can't decide if this is funny or not:)
