Are y'all getting the ERs from the same submission email? I submitted on 1/16,got the automatic receipt, then... Nothing. As I saw the first few ERs I thought maybe that meant maybe I'll get a request. But now I'm. Worried I got lost in the slush or spam lol

I have queried Holly twice now for different projects, I had to wait about 8 weeks for both responses.

Does anyone know if Holly is just far out in her responses? The website suggests 4 weeks for response, but I was debating a nudge...
