Surprised not to at least get a rejection from her. I queried her before with another project and got a response within a short time.

pmarino300 - I only saw that they did not accept unsolicited manuscripts. I saw nothing on their website about queries.

On Friday I requeried Samantha Shea with Venom--today I've heard back from her--not a right fit for her. I'll try her this summer with Chain Reaction.
