Submitted to #PeerPitch and made it to the long list and then the short list. Sharon was the main vote both times. Then I ranked #4 in the entire contest and Sharon asked to see the full MS. I was working with a mentor at the time so I couldn't send it.

Full MS sent 4/25
Confirmed moments later

Offer of Rep: 3/13
Her offer email went to my SPAM. She re-sent the email on 3/21, and I accepted on 4/12 (I had ten fulls out and other offers to go through).
I've had success thus far with a small press, and I'm excited to see if we can take my career to the next level!

Hi XXX,

Thanks so much for sharing XXXXX. We aren’t acquiring any more suspense / thrillers at the moment so I’m regretfully going to pass.

But please do feel free to send any future works. We’d love to see them!

It would be nice if she'd explain why she can't take on a project, but ah well.
