QT stats suggest she responds within 13 days if she's interested, so I'm going to go ahead and close this one. Best of luck to everyone still being considered!

I submitted but didn't receive an acknowledgement. Followed though to see if it was received - no response. Moving on.

I nudged on 4/20/20 to confirm that it was a rejection before I query another agent at DMLA. Katie responded promptly and was incredibly kind in her response.

That was fast. I sent a query in response to a webinar she gave. It took her three weeks past the promised deadline she gave for her response, and she obviously didn't even read the query or synopsis -- the remarks had nothing to do with the material.
