Just checked out Suzie's Tumblr. She's read all queries up to Aug 4. I submitted Aug 2 and not heard anything, so assuming rejection. She doesn't respond unless she's interested.

She updates her Tumblr pretty frequently with how far along she is (her most recent update says that she's through queries from before 12:30pm on August 4th)

Number one on QueryTracker's list of top 10 non-responsive agents. Don't know why I keep querying her.

I was confused about that, too. Catsamoa79. But if you go to her twitter, there's a link to her tumblr blog, and on the sidebar it says she's up to July 28th with queries.
