Personalized rejection with a referral to two of her colleagues who might be better fit, which I appreciated very much.

Contemporary romance/womens fiction. 138K words. Queried M. Townsend in early December and received a rejection email on 2/16. The auto reply during submission said no reply within 3 months means she's passing. I assumed that was going to be the case, but I did end up getting a response, so I appreciated that. I don't like having to guess what is going on.

54 Days, no response. Removing query.

I DNR'd her. It seems she must have been double-secret closed for submissions. Because if you look at her query timeline. She started responding to queries after a point, and simply not responding to the months of queries, before that point. Thanks for wasting our time.
