@Kabdou--I queried 10/26 and haven't heard back yet (other than the confirmation), but her guidelines say, "Our agency-wide goal is to answer a query within 4-6 weeks and respond to a full manuscript request within 4-6 months. Please think of these timelines as aspirational guidelines rather than hard deadlines." I'm going to wait until after the new year before I check in.

Hope you hear something good!
