Rom com. Very complimentary about the story, characters, and writing. Nice to get a flattering, personalized response, even if the reason for rejection is somewhat vague. Would definitely query her again.

I totally thought she'd be too busy right now to look at a query floating in right before she closed for awhile, but I guess not!
ER: 12/27/18 - Form unfortunately. Oh well! I'm bummed though, she seems awesome.

She tweeted about some "exciting life stuff" to come and is closing to queries on Oct 15th. If the stuff is so exciting, will she have time to properly rep new MS? Saving her for later.
