Memoir (proposal with 45 pages of sample)

EQ 10/1
Request for Proposal 10/3
Nudge 10/17
Reply 10/19 saying thanks for your patience and they will get back soon

ER 11/12 Very kind and detailed. Said it was a hard decision but she didn't "feel quite as engaged as she'd hoped." Spoke very specifically about the sample chapters and the proposal revealing that they do look closely and approach submissions thoughtfully. Rejection but overall very helpful and professional.

Responded to query with request for 30 pages and 2-week exclusivity. Manuscript is out elsewhere, so asked if I could send it if they declined. She said yes, certainly, and thanked me for the update.

Have gotten to day 30 with no response. Reviewed other queries listed and it appears she hasn't requested additional material on any query since 11/17/17. Seems no point in keeping this open on my query list. Will close today, no response.

Anyone have experience with the new assistant at WSA? Curious how quickly she responds to individuals after requesting full manuscripts with exclusive (2 week) reads?
