She's replied to people who submitted their queries a month after mine, so I'm figuring she passed on mine.

Does anyone know if the “brief synopsis in the body of the email” refers to the short blurb in one’s query letter, or to a regular synopsis with major plot points and the ending, to follow pasted in? Since they request the sample chapters as attachments, it seems like they would want a regular synopsis as an attachment also.
Thanks!

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
