Thanks, Surfrat and Patchi. :) Sounds like that's the norm, then.

Hi! For those of you who submitted partial/fulls, did you get an email back from Carrie acknowledging that she received the manuscript? I always worry about ending up in a spam folder somewhere if I don’t hear. ;)

Oh, wow, should I resend? I sent an online query to her at Prospect, 8 days ago.
She answers this on Twitter:
If you submitted to me at Prospect on or after December 27, please re-query at queries (at) ldlainc (dot) com!! If I requested partials or fulls from you while at Prospect, I am still considering and will get back to you as soon as I can!

So I resent: 2/ 22 YA, Historical Fantasy Fast Pass: 2/23
