Partial Request: 1/14
Sent a follow-up email March 27 to make sure she had received the requested chapters as I hadn't received a response. No response yet, but I'm sure she is busy. I just hope my emails aren't going into spam.

She’s said on her podcast that she schedules #500queries 5 months in advance so there’s no correlation between that and her current responses.

@Elysia I was curious, so I actually asked her on Twitter - she replied that she's been away at an event so she's fallen behind on queries, but that also she's usually more like other agents in that it takes up to six weeks for a reply; it's unusual for her to be as caught-up as she was through February. (She didn't mention how the #500queries fit in but my guess is that you're absolutely right)

@fordwalker I saw her tweet once that her #500 queries were prepared well in advance, so I don't think they are current queries. Maybe she's been too busy since mid-Feb to get back to anyone, it just seems odd that in the timeline she was consistently responding up until that point and there's been nothing since then
