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...

"Thank you so much for thinking of us for this project. We’re so sorry for the delayed response! We’d set your submission aside for further consideration and hung on to it as we deliberated.

Although we won’t be pursuing representation at this time, it was a very close call, and we would be happy to hear from you again on future projects if you don’t connect with someone wonderful on this one.

Thank you again for the chance to consider!"

Glad to know it took a long time for a good reason.
