Belated EQ: 9/30/16 (Chain Reaction)--same day rejection. Not a good fit. I've queried her before her profile was listed her on QT.

3/15/17: EQ 1/15/17 (Diplomatic Immunity)
CNR 3/15/17 (No word from nudge.) Will requery her this summer if I don't get a R from her, like I have for Chain Reaction up above.

Even though the agency website says they only accept postal queries, Elise's blog clarifies that she actual does take email queries.
