I had to put in the date as 10/14 in my record because for whatever strange reason, QT won't let me click on 10/15

....sounds like a compelling read, and the voice is strong and distinctive. Unfortunately, I don't have a clear sense of how this book fits in the market...

Update: Just for grins I thought I'd nudge her one last time on my full that she's had since January 2020, since she reopened recently. Still absolutely no response. Given the other experiences I've had with this agency, sadly I think I won't be querying them again. Very frustrating.

- - -
FWIW, she's said in her latest podcast that she might take the summer off. Not sure if that means not working at all, or working to catch up on the fulls she has, but I'm sadly closing this one out, since I've still had no reply to the nudges I sent earlier in the year, and she's had my full 16 months now.

Update (sort of): still have not had a response on my last 2 nudges for the full she's had since January 2020. As with everyone else, I received the auto-response about queries, but no personal reply to say she's still working on it. She said last year that she was checking everything in her inbox personally, despite the auto-reply, but I am wondering if that's still the case.

@hcaruffo_789 and @Lilnightmusic, thank you for that info. When she has communicated, she's been so nice and apologetic. I've closed out some others who've had mss over a year and not replied to any nudge, but I'm holding on to hope here for sure.
