6/22: Received a pitch contest like from an Editor and submitted the full that same day. (Note: they only asked for the first 3 chapters, I think? But since I had the full ready they told me to submit it all.)
8/11: R&R offer with copious notes. I'm not sure if an R&R is standard for this publisher, but between the notes and telling me they would "really love to look at it again" I am hopeful! Now implementing the notes are another thing... it will be tough but I really appreciate the feedback as well as the super fast response!

Thanks @tialsb! It was about 60 days. For reference, the first book I queried to them in 2019 was 12 weeks to a rejection. But I do think it varies depending on how many subs they have. Good luck!

Congrats, @rhmae_me! How long did it take from submission to offer? I'm trying to get a handle on what the time frame is.

FR: 2/26/2019 after meeting at conference
Updated: 3/29/2019 Suggested submit to another line
Updated: 6/26/2019 Will hit 14 weeks next week. Still no word.
Updated: 8/1/2019 No response to my message for info 3 weeks ago.
Updated: 8/6/2019 Got response to my email and was basically told, 'oh, those 14 weeks we tell you about? not true. We don't have any given amount of time you might hear back. keep waiting.' Sigh. I'm now at 18+ weeks. (4.5 months)
