13 days later a rejection:
Thanks so much for contacting me about your book project, but I'm afraid I wouldn't be the best representative for it. Best of luck on your path to publication.

No response. Seeing that she is a fast responder, I sent a nudge at the three week mark. Still no response. Disappointing. Marking this a CNR.
