I had not heard from her and from looking at the other comments I don't think my story would be what she's looking for.

70 days with no response, and I'm working on an R&R. Didn't feel the need to keep this one open.

Wishlist doesn't mention PB, MG, or memoirs

From site -
"In YA and Adult, she is interested in speculative fiction, mystery, thrillers, and select romance. Renae is always interested in #OwnVoices."

Pub Market -
"General fiction, Mystery, Romance, Suspense/thriller, Fantasy/science fiction, Juvenile fiction, Biography, African-American"

MSWL has more detail -
"In YA and Adult, I am interested in contemporary, speculative fiction, magical realism, mystery, thrillers, and romance. I accept novels and graphic novels.
I welcome queries by #OwnVoices authors. In crime and mysteries, I want more than a police procedural. Legal thrillers, amateur sleuths, paranormal detectives are welcome. I'm interested in magical realism that has heart, humor, and adventure. I want to see the fun side of magic and scifi. I want to see suburban stories that give a peek behind the curtain of perfection."
