Submitted query letter on my 116K word lit fic novel per website specs (including names of two other submissions) on 6/9/17 and received a prompt and polite rejection 9 days later. First time I have ever experienced such promptness, not to mention just receiving a reply at all.

HopefulAuthor, thanks, I think I will re-send! I use Nightly (the newish version of Thunderbird.) The reply settings don't always work, you can easily set your incoming box to reject those auto-requests from email programs. Apparently this intern hadn't done that.
