ER: 4/18/18
Weird thing is, I only sent her a query--no sample pages--and her response was as follows:

"My apologies for the delay! I loved the setup here, but the characters didn’t quite come alive for me. I truly appreciate you querying me, and again, sorry for the slow response. Best of luck!"

So...my characters didn't come alive in the query????? Were they supposed to...?

4/5 that weird email where she says she will get back to me...
4/6 FR "I'm definitely intrigued! I'd love to read the full manuscript. A word doc is best."

She did send the weird email and then requested... and she was fast. So there's that.

She requested during Pitmad and I sent right away but have heard nothing. No confirmation or anything. Is that abnormal?

This definitely took awhile, but she was really nice in her rejection and took the time to personalize.

Possibly the nicest rejection ever on 8th Feb saying it had been a tough choice with various compliments and wishing me luck.
