On 11/6/13, I queried Pilar with Chain Reaction via email. Last month, I nudged her via mail. As of Monday, it's closed/no response.

rejection after first 50, took about two weeks. Sounds like a form reject.

Thanks so much for sharing your work with me. The scenes you paint are vivid but I just didn’t get hooked into the story. As I am sure you know, selling fiction is a real challenge these days and for me to take on new fiction writers, I need to be wildly enthusiastic about it and I am afraid I just didn’t have the necessary enthusiasm to be the right advocate for this project.

Please remember that publishing is a business of opinions and mine is just one. Thanks so much for thinking of me and I wish you the best of luck in placing it elsewhere.
