Question - I sent her a query 6-3-19. I got a request for a partial on 6-25-19. It's 12-6-19 now. Should I keep waiting? I don't really like nudging...
Actually, I guess I could ask her on Twitter. Hmm.

This is the fifth project for which I've queried Ms. Tempest. Let no one accuse me of a lack of persistence! :D
And the fifth project for which I've received the same pleasant form response. :)

Then things get weird. Nephele e-mailed me directly, AFTER the rejection, on 4.1.18 requesting the Full manuscript.

FR 4.1.18, sent same day

11.29.19 Definitely a CNR. Way over a year. I take it she doesn't respond to fulls.
