Lost their initial September response to the spam gods. Inquired again and was told to make certain revisions to my manuscript and submit again. They also agreed to read a full of my second novel.

Holding my breath.

Queried Jan 4; form rejection Jan 12:

Thank you for your email. For various reasons, not least the current market, we shall not be requesting you to submit your material to us.

We do however thank you for thinking of us and wish you better luck elsewhere. We would also ask you to please forgive this standard email, but we receive so many requests that we cannot reply to all of them individually.

Requested a full! One day turn-around time! Yes, I'm a little excited. She very politely apologized that it would take them about 4 months to read the MS, due to their backlog.

I can live with that, as long as I can query others. She didn't specifically ask for an exclusive, although their website does say they prefer it. I won't send anything out without letting them know.
