Ended up being rejected, however, the note from her assistant was so lovely and encouraging and she actually gave me an actionable recommendation to tweak something in the story.

11/2/15, I've requeried Alyssa with Venom. Two weeks ago, I've nudged her. Now it's a CNR, like she gave me 4 years ago. I'll try her next year with CR's requery.

Full Manuscript Request: 11/30/2018
Full Sent: 12/3/2018 (I should add that all my interactions to this point were with Elizabeth Carlton, Ms. Reuben's assistant.)
Nudge on 1/7/2019, asking for confirmation that they received my full.
On 1/8/2019, got an email from Ms. Reuben's NEW assistant, Katelyn Dougherty, who told me Ms. Carlton had moved on and would I please resend the full. I resent the full that same day.
1/9/2019, I received confirmation that Ms. Dougherty received the full and will look at it. I am not at all optimistic, since now the full manuscript is being analyzed by someone who wasn't the person who originally selected it. Hell, she doesn't even know the big picture, because she didn't receive the original query letter and synopsis. Time will tell, of course, but I just don't feel my odds are good.

Form rejection. Added a gendered honorific that I didn't use in my query, which I'm not a big fan of.
