No confirmation e-mail, and I can't find anything stating a timeline for when to consider it a pass. Website says they'll only respond if interested in seeing more material.

Just wanted to let everyone know about a Tweet from Ms. Bewley today regarding genre:

"Writers, did you know that I'm looking for adult novels to represent, as well as middle-grade and YA? Just putting it out into the universe."
