FQ: 10/21
Realized on 11/17 that she actually liked my #PitDark tweet from 10/20. I DMed her to let her know and she said she was behind on queries but would look out for it! She's super kind.

Oct 2. 2022 form query
Nov 12 2022 form rejection

YA south Asian fantasy

I sent a message saying I changed both the query and manuscript & asked to withdraw and resubmit. But she must not have cared since I got the form rejection without any mention of it

"Dear XX,
Thank you for your query. Unfortunately I must pass as I don’t think I'm the best fit at this time. That said, publishing is a very subjective industry, and your project may very well be perfect for someone else. I wish you the best of luck in all your publishing endeavors, and I hope this project finds the perfect home soon.

Best wishes,

FQ 7/5/22 Adult Historical Thriller/Fantasy
I had marked her as CNR about a month ago (at the 3 month mark)
PR 10/21/22 - 108 days since I sent the query. Pages uploaded via online form same day.
Not really holding any hope out for this one. But I was surprised to get the request so many days later.
