I have to assume CNR 6/19/19...

Curious at her high response rate yet as of 6/17/19 I'd heard nothing.
Wondering whether to nudge, try another agent at Upstart, or assume not interested?

Thank you so much for sharing your book with me! I’ve had a chance to read your story and appreciate the work that went into writing it. Unfortunately, I’m not the right agent for this project, so must pass. But my opinion is only one, of course, so keep querying!

With gratitude and good wishes, Susan Hawk
