5/31/18 FR, materials sent same day
I had closed this as a CNR back in April and was completely disoriented when the FR came. Got a very speedy affirmation that the materials had been received. So, for those waiting for a reply, don't lose hope!

@Snowglobe: I would email a note with the revised version, asking if she would rather read this one if she hasn't started on the manuscript. I don't think it will hurt your chances, especially since the request was a while back. Good luck!

In the time I've been waiting, I've come to the conclusion it's probably going to be a pass. I've gotten a new CP in the mean time and made some changes that have made it so much better. I wish that I'd sent this version. I guess you live and learn. Even though I'm sure it will be a pass, it would have been nice to have gotten that stated in a formal letter. On the other hand, maybe there's still hope.

Best of luck Snowglobe - they have had my full since May... very slow in responding. I gave them a nudge about a week ago, but still nothing.

Update: Aug.7 - form rejection.
After having my manuscript since May, supposedly considering, I get a form rejection. This blows so much. There are days I feel done with even trying. This is one of these days.
