Closing this out (ought to have long ago) 2/12/17

Tweaked her via email again in early February. Nothing yet.

Met Ms. Flashman at a conference pitch session in June. She loved my pitch (!), asked to see full. (She was really nice and smart, and I liked her.) I tweaked ms. over the summer, and sent it to her in August. She replied within the hour that she was excited to read it. Heard nothing for a while. Sent an email 8 weeks later, asking if she'd had a chance to read it yet. No reply. Not sure what is going on behind the scenes, so I just got back to work and am writing and querying away.

wrote to her via submission email at Janklow to inquire on materials prev sent to her while at trident. She responded personally with a quick reject later that night. Better to have an answer than waiting any longer! Onward...
