I and at least ten others have a full out with them currently (over the past 90 days) with no rejects, a few additional requests. I'm going to guess she's really backed up and that's why she's advertising for an assistant, on Twitter. Odd though about the bounce backs since it appears their queries go through a central email. The waiting game in all its glory!

Sent manuscript Dec 3 (in response to live agent pitch at Toronto writing conference Aug 2019) 71k suspense.
On Jan 4 she confirmed receipt.
On Jan 25 she rejected it: "I really enjoyed the premise of this, but the pace didn't hold up for me so I'm going to have to pass. Wishing you the best." I appreciate the comment re pace -- that gives me an indication of why she rejected it, beyond the usual "not for me" boilerplate.

On instagram today, she said P.S. does not send out rejections.
They only respond if they want more materials - so no response means no.

Kind of the reality these days.

She posted to twitter today: "When our @PSLiterary query inbox opens again for the New Year please send me adult commercial/upmarket novels that are 70-85k. I would love some short and punchy novels. I don't want to read anything over 90k right now. My attention span (& the rest of the world) is SHORT."
