EQ 9/14/16 MG Fantasy 34K
Full request 9/15/16 (fingers crossed)
ER 3/27/17 Apologized for taking so long (over six months), but while she liked the idea, she didn't "fall in love" as much as she would need to.

Gentle nudge 12/14/16 (never sure what is appropriate, but thought 3 months might be good time to check)
Another gentle nudge 1/4/17. No response to the first, but perhaps now the holidays are over she'll respond. Otherwise, I may have to close it out is CNR. (Which I hate to do on a full request. Sigh.)

Definitely the quickest turnaround time I've ever experienced. The wait begins!

EQ: 8/27 MG (SFF) STEM ... a no response? She has no activity on Twitter since March. I've started pitching another project on twitter today. I may have to close this project down. :(
CNR: 9/08/16 after 12 days. She seems to respond fast if interested.
