From her twitter (@Lynnette_Novak):
"Query Update: I've read all queries sent before Oct. 1. If you haven't heard back from me, it's a pass for that project. I'm still reading partials sent in Sept. and fulls sent in Aug. While I don't respond to queries, unless interested, I respond to ALL REQUESTED MATERIAL."
