I received a form rejection eight months after submitting a query to her through QueryManager, so interpret that however you'd like.

I submitted a non-fiction query to David Black and got a response two days later from Zuraw-Friedland asking to see a full book proposal. I sent the proposal on June 29, and have sent two email inquires about it, one in late August and another two weeks ago. But I haven't gotten any kind of response.
