ER: 8/8/19 -- She made a couple of comments. Funny thing, I didn't think I'd hear back as I had been skipped over a whole bunch of times. You never know!

@ktwills79 - I'm in the same boat. I submitted 74 days ago, sent a follow up email, and have yet to hear back. With Premium, I can see her Timeline for responses, and she appears to be skipping all over the place. There are some that haven't been followed up on as far back as February, and then some who've gotten answers as recently as 6 days ago. I don't think there is much rhyme or reason to the order in which she's responding, which is about as comforting as getting a tooth pulled, but still. Just hang in there, we'll hear back eventually :)

I'm a little confused--it seems that people are mostly hearing back in about 2 months on their queries. I submitted mine 70 days ago (thank you query tracker) and have yet to hear anything! I've even sent an updated message notifying her of an offer of publication, but still have heard nothing. I'm wondering if mine somehow got lost, but don't know if that's possible when using query manager?

I received a "personalized" rejection for SF that would be nice if it applied, but it doesn't. And I wonder if there is a canned personalized rejection menu to pick from on Querytracker. If so, picking the wrong one is worse than useless.

I got a little feedback, which is appreciative. And I quote: "We felt like events may have happened too quickly in your opening pages preventing us from getting into the mindset of your main character and your world."
At least it's something different than a typical form rejection, so I'm happy.

carajedwards and others who've CNR'd after recent requests - if you follow her on Twitter, you can see that she has been planning a writer's retreat in New Jersey for the last few weeks, and when I emailed her to follow up on my conference-requested submission, received an automated response that said she was considered "out of office" until June 8th. I doubt she's been reading anything in the meantime. I wouldn't give up hope just yet :)
