I queried her again on 2/8 (sorta like a nudge), got a form on 2/28 that went like this:

" Thank you for sending me your query. I appreciate having had the
chance to take a look.

Since our volume of submissions here is so high, and ongoing projects
compete for dedicated focus, I am sorry to tell you that I am unable
to request anything further from you at this time.

I wish you great success as you seek representation.

Kind regards,
Deborah Hofmann
The David Black Agency"

To be honest, though, she just doesn't seem very active/responsive in general, so.. *shrug*
