Kim Perel was incredibly gracious, kind, and thoughtful in her comments. She asked a lot of rhetorical questions to get me thinking about how to make changes, and finished her email with an invitation to resubmit if I choose to use her notes.

Yeah Briguy! I'm still waiting to hear from her on my Chain Reaction query--she gave me a CNR for Venom.

10/2/12, I got this back on my nudge concerning her email: Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

Helpful rejection, I had suspected a few of the items she mentioned and asked if I could resubmit since I was going to work on revising for those specific concerns. She said yes, so I am marking this as an R & R though it isn't technically that.
