8/3/18: Personal rejection:
Dear Jenna,
Thanks for the chance to review sample chapters of [REDACTED]. The first scene was creepy, which I love. Great job! You have a nice voice too. Unfortunately, I didn’t connect with the story enough to request more. I wish I had better news. This is a subjective industry. Another agent might feel this MS is the perfect fit for his/her list. Keep querying!

Very nice and encouraging. I assume she'll either reject/ignore my second query for #IWSGPit.

Yes, thanks! so that's a no-response-means-no for me. Oh, well. Onwards!

From Twitter:

I'm caught up on queries sent BEFORE Monday, July 23. If you haven't heard from me, it's a pass on that project. This does NOT include requested material from #ThrillerFest or any Twitter pitch contest. I reply to all REQUESTED material and am still working my way through June.
