She just tweeted that she is reviewing January undecided queries and if you don't hear anything by 4/1 to take it as a pass (for January submissions only )

Another haven't heard from a January query here. Tried to follow up on Twitter because she was being so open about it so I thought it couldn't hurt to ask, but now her tweets are protected so maybe that was a mistake lol. Hope everything's alright with her though!

Also haven't heard back from a jan query. Good to know I'm not the only one!

@anotherwriter2025 Where did she say that? I've kept an eye on her twitter because I also queried in Jan and haven't heard back lol

@damisalako I also haven't heard back and I queried in January. She said she was holding onto a few queries she was undecided on. You can always feel free to follow up at the three month mark but I wouldn't stress about it getting lossed.

I queried on Jan 18 but haven't heard back yet. I know in mid Feb she made a comment on twitter about still catching up but having at least read all Jan queries at that time. And on 3/10 she mentioned taking a break from her inbox. So now I'm worried my query got lost or something :/

Email query after #IWSGpit like: 1/25/23
Rejection: 2/28/23

Thank you so much for thinking of me. I appreciate your patience as I was considering TITLE. While I find the premise rather intriguing, unfortunately, this project isn’t quite the right fit for my list at this time. So, I should step aside. I wish I could offer more personalized feedback.
At any rate, I’m delighted we’ve been able to connect via Twitter. If you choose to revise your work at any point in the next 6+ months, I invite you to query me again. At that time, I’d love to hear about any new projects you’re working on, too.
To that end, I truly appreciate the look, and once again, thank you for considering me. I wish you nothing but the best.

Email Query on 1/12/23 after connecting on twitter through her MSWL tweets
Pass on 2/28/23 with the absolute sweetest pass I have received with an invitation to re-query if I revise in the next six months and introduce other projects I’m working on at that time!
