Queried again a week later with an offer of publication on a different ms. She requested additional materials and then ultimately passed on 4/9, but recommended that I submit to her colleague, Clelia Gore.

No response yet but others seem to have gotten theirs? It's been two weeks now.

Adria was very helpful as she told me that my manuscript wasn't a fit for her. She helped me understand the difficulty with publishing Christmas books at the publisher level which better sets my expectations for the future of promoting the book. Very thankful for her.
