5/7: Submitted a PB MS after I saw her announce she was looking at PB pitches on Twitter.
5/12: Rec'd friendly reply saying she reviews PBs by referral only. Generous of her to reply.

Helpful, part form/part encouraging. Praised the themes and idea for being unique, but ultimately she isn’t the fit to rep dark fantasy specifically.
