Per Twitter profile, Amelia is only able to respond to queries she is interested in from 12/1-1/15. If you have not heard back from her within a week, it's a pass.

States on confirmation email that due to the holidays, she can only respond to queries she's interested in. Anything over 7 days is a pass.

Closing this one out after 53 days. She seems to take exception to her agency's submission response guidelines.

@SomeLady... I had to submit twice before getting a response. I only waited days after the two week deadline before submitting again. If you're sure she's the one, try try again. Good luck. :-)

I tried her twice as a result of having Uwe Stender suggest I query her and didn't hear back either time in spite of the whole "we respond within two weeks" thing.

For those interested the letter said:

Thank you for querying me with SYMBIOTIC SLIP. I think you have an interesting story here, but I'm afraid I'm not connecting with it as much as I was hoping to, so I am going to pass.
Thank you again and I wish you the best of luck in your search for representation.
