Got a super nice R from her on a project I had queried in the first quarter of the year.

Very kind form rejection with an apology for taking so long. I know, on top of everything that everyone is dealing with 2020-wise, Beth has had additional things making her life difficult, so I'm grateful she went back and replied to everyone <3

I am so sorry for my absurd delay in responding to you about your submission. I’m mortified that I am only replying now and unfortunately with a form letter to boot. I’m not sure of the status of this project, but I didn’t want to leave you hanging any longer without at least an answer and apology. Ultimately, this is a pass from me, but thank you for the query, for the patience, and for the opportunity.

Best wishes,
