@JustinJoseph her QM messaging after submitting specified that Feb/March will likely have slower response times because she anticipated a large influx of queries since she hadn't been open for a while. I would give her 2-3 months for a reply!

She did mention in her post-query message that she's pretty sure she'll take a few months to get back to all her February queries, so keep that in mind!

Hopefully, she’s a fast responder for good news.

Rejection: 8-17-22
It was a personalized rejection and she complimented a lot of my writing. However, she didn't "consistently connect with the dialogue" with two of my characters. It's understandable, but I was REALLY hoping on this one since my manuscript seemed right up her ally.
