Looking at the "timeline," she has a good record of responding one way or another...not a single CNR since Jan 1, 2018. Still, people before and after me are getting reqs within hours (or even minutes) and it's been a couple weeks...fingers crossed!

EQ 3/6
FR 3/6 (like literally 5 minutes after I queried her. I was SHOCKED)
I sent the ms over five minutes after that.

Form Rejection 3/22 (she even used the words "we" instead of "I", which seemed unnecessarily removed. But at least she let me know, and it was fast.)

Thank you for letting us review your material for Canyon Flower, which we read with great interest.

Unfortunately, we have determined that we are not the appropriate agents to represent this material. In this very competitive market, we are simply not enthusiastic enough about our ability to sell this work to offer representation.

We wish you the best of luck placing this successfully. Thank you, once again, for letting us consider it.

Best regards,

Miriam Goderich
