@mjjune, I queried her May 22nd, so I'm almost four months out, which isn't a super long time at all for this query climate, I just saw the last non-nudge response looked like it was for a query from Feb

FYI, she has also posted recently that she's closing to queries on 9/28; she did mention she is behind, and tries to answer every query.

Don't know what you considered super behind, but it seems like her last large chunk of replies/rejects is back in early June. She has had a few rejections/reqs since then but they're sporadic. Most queries since 6/7/22 have had no response yet (per timeline)

JustinJoseph: Yes, that was a QueryManager response. It wasn't emailed, though, just presented on the confirmation page.

Autoresponse: Thank you for your submission, I will review within 3-4 months and respond. Please know that I try to respond to every query, so a delay is not necessarily a rejection, please be patient and feel free to nudge if appropriate.

Patrick and RenardLouisiana: I watched a video interview with her from May 2022 and she said she is open to sci-fi but is "trying to keep the military industrial complex out of my in-box."

Thanks RenardLouisianais, but she does list both on her QueryManager form.
