Queried 8th October
Pass 8th October

Both Manuscript queried were rejected in 2-5 hours.

A small note; While the fast response time is great, it’s possible that speed-reading through queries is the reason she doesn’t take the time to find anything she likes? All the responses I see other people get from her are rejections as well. I suppose she’s suitable to query if you’re after a fast response to gauge your query package. otherwise, I’m not very certain if what she says she seeks on her MSWL truly is what she seeks.

She specifically mentioned sci-fi and fantasy mash ups on her MSWL as something she's looking for, so fingers crossed!
