Just realize how bad my query letter was. Will rewrite my query letter. I think I'm going to CNR this one, although it's only been 12 days. She seems to respond fast when she is interested.

Received a kind rejection today. It was personalized with some nice feedback, i.e. what worked and what didn't. Sarah is very nice and quite prompt and I'd recommend her!
