EQ Dec 4
FR Dec 4 - about 30 mins later. She also acknowledged receipt of the manuscript. Very friendly and professional.
She specifically mentioned she's working with a self-imposed timeline of 8 weeks for full requests so I'm hoping to hear back by February.

UPDATE: we are just a few days past the 8 week mark and I have not heard back. However, she did say that since I queried pre-Christmas she may take longer than her usual 8 weeks. Based on our conversation, even if it's a rejection, I do expect to hear from her soon. I don't think it will be a CNR situation. Also, according to Twitter, she has recently signed three new writers, so she is definitely actively signing new people!

Adult literary fiction/magical realism
