Sent ms in September.
Full request 2 weeks later.
Susan and Megan, her assistant got back and said they loved it, but I needed to cut 30 pages and they would take another look.
Sent revised ms at end of October.
Just nudged to see if she got it today. She got back right away and said 'many thanks, but I never received the ms and dont have time to read the ms'.
So I guess this is a rejection.
UPDATE: I emailed her for clarification...did she not receive the ms and that is why she couldn't read it, OR, was she not interested. She got back to me right away and said to resend the ms. I did and she has emailed me again, letting me know she did get it, and will read it in February.
Sorry about the complexity of all these notes, but sending clarification emails can really help!
UPDATE: Rejected today, Jan 21.

Form rejection in a little over an and polite.

Thank you so much for your query. However, this project doesn’t sound right for our list. I encourage you to continue to submit elsewhere, and, I wish you every success in your writing career. Thank you again for thinking of me and of this agency.

Best regards,
