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!
