6/14/19: Sent pitch via Twitter in response to her tweets today. "Get your pitches in! You have until 11:59 p.m. EST tonight to pitch to me directly. I just went through pages 7-9 and requested: THE STORM NEXT DOOR and THE DIVIDED. More requests to come today and/or tomorrow." She encourages regular queries if she doesn't respond to the tweet, so I will wait the weekend to see if she replies.

She liked two of my PitDark pitches! Hoping she likes the MSS too!! Will update when/if I hear back.

I know some are saying she's caught up through 6/8, Lynnette has noted this does not include any partials she requested through a pitch party and that she responds to all requested material... so I'm holding off on closing this out.

She also said she was caught up on requested materials received before May 1st and if you haven't heard back on them to let her know.

Lynnette posted on Twitter 6/10/19 that she's caught up on queries sent before June 8. If you haven't heard back, it's a pass for that project (not including partial and full requests).
