My horror -- I found the word doc I sent blank!
No idea what happened. Today I sent her the first chapter -- 23 days since the original query. Worth a shot.

Sometimes she does #tenqueries on twitter. It's a good way to get a feel for her MSWL. @SWekstein

I got a request after several months, so it seems like the positive responses aren’t always quick. Hang in there, everyone!

Follow up: 4/12/18
ER: 6/12/18 - looked like a form letter.

She says she is WAY behind on evaluating queries. Also closed to queries in August and Sept. Note: If you follow up, DON'T put "Query" in the subject line of your nudge. That will make our query will bounce back to the end of the line. She DOES respond to queries, but it looks as if her average response time is 5-6 months.

Does anyone know if she replies to all? I should have a response by now if she does, but I haven't gotten one yet. Thanks! (Wondering if I should resend.)
