Mine's at 35 days and no response. I do remember he was on paternity leave so maybe he's still on it?

Got a polite rejection email from Nora saying that she and Stephen reviewed my query but ultimately didn't wholeheartedly connect with it despite its many charms so they're stepping aside and wish me the best of luck which is nice :)

Still, at least they answer.
