@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!

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.

Seeing this:
"If your submission is received by our system, an automated response will be emailed to you." I sent 22 days ago and never rec an auto-response.
Should I resend?
