Disappointed because after five months with the full and a few nudges, I have to mark this as Closed, No Response. Sigh. (I will update if she eventually does respond)

Took a little while, but I really appreciated her feedback! She also invited me to submit any other works that I have now or in the future.

@JustinJoseph I'm not sure how helpful it is to know, but it took 97 days after I queried her for her to request a full, which she's had now for 58 days. She's terrific, but I wouldn't put too much faith in that 2-4 weeks.

YA, HF I got a very kind and helpful pass. She was specific about what grabbed her or didn't. Pretty awesome. Good luck, writers!

Thanks, tabell. I never received an auto-confirm and being 34 days since I queried I nudged. Yeah, I did on 1/30
Finally, the auto-confirm and happy to have it.

Hi karenleespree,

I used the agency contact form to explain my submission (including date sent and title) and lack of auto response. Danielle Chiotti replied to say my submission was received. Said she's working through November and December submissions and I should hear back soon. I bet your submission went through, too, so I'd sit tight.
