@Babs14 I sent mine on Jan 15th and haven't heard back either. But looking through some of the older comments, some people heard back closer to the 3 month mark so I'm still hopeful.

Did anyone get a confirmation email after sending a full? She's had mine a little longer than some here. I'm not sure if that is a good sign, or maybe she didn't recieve my full..?

She's fast and courteous, as others have said. She liked my premise but didn't find the plotting as compelling as she hoped.

FR: 1-5-2021, submitted same day.

Rejection came just two days later on 1-7-2021. She did explain her reasoning, but it's most likely subjective because I don't know how it could be employed. Either way, it's a kind rejection and the fast turnaround time is lovely. She seems great.

Amazed she read my full that quickly? She's super fast, as others here have said. Rejected saying there were too many side characters for her taste and that they detracted from the main romance. I'm not too disheartened by this, as I always knew it straddled the line between being a focused romance and plot-driven fantasy.
