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?

6-30-16 EQ, received auto-response saying would contact if interested
7-1-16 Full requested, saying would appreciate a two-week exclusive if possible
7-1-16 Full sent, with two-week exclusive, as requested
7-12-16 Received personal rejection letter--very kind, positive, encouraging. Didn't feel enthusiastic enough to pursue further. Seems like she would be a lovely person to work with.

5/28 FR saying she would like to read my material and to send at my convenience (sent 6/2, my child was in the hospital which I explained as to why it took a few days).
Waiting for a response.... She seems wonderful so fingers crossed!

On 2/19/16, I've requeried Wendy Sherman with Venom's requery and nudged her on Friday. I've heard back with her with a pass--sorry, not pursuing form rejection. I'll try her this spring with Chain Reaction's requery.
