I read on Twitter that Mr. Ellor doesn’t necessarily read submissions in the order they’re received, so no idea when I might hear back on this one.

Selenad, from something he RT'd on Twitter at one point, I gather that he keeps a "maybe" list. My query may have been on it as well (I don't know, of course), he held onto it for about 5 weeks before passing. So I wouldn't lose hope!

Sent query request from #DVpit on 10/17 via online form.
Still haven't heard anything back from it. It seems he gets back to authors quickly with either rejections or requests, has anyone else had to wait this long for a response?

He asks for a synopsis, but he did not read it. Overall helpful, quick response.
