Automatic response email to confirm receipt of query: "If you don't hear from us within one month, it means that we will be passing on your work."

EQ: Emailed JL Stermer directly via referral from Sasha Graham 10/03/18 - no samples sent
10/16/18 Received a response that she is interested - sent 5 sample pages along with marketing bio. Very nice reply!
ER: 11/04/18 A pass, but with some very encouraging words. I knew this was a long shot from the beginning, as she's not taking fiction right now and I came via referral. I want to frame this rejection and put it on the wall--she really had awesome things to say :)

NR 5/12/17 The auto reply said if not heard from within a month, they're not interested. Bummer. I really felt like she was a good fit.
