      Hi Greg!
      I hadn’t heard anything on this after my donation was accepted – I’m not in any rush (since I still have some revision to do) but wanted to make sure that if someone did contact me about this it didn’t fall through the cracks somehow.
      Thanks much! A

      • Hi, Anne.

        It may be that she’s been busy or misplaced your email address. Feel free to send her a friendly ping and cc me on it. Thanks!

        Hi Greg!
        I just sent an email via her website, you’re probably right that my address got lost in the shuffle or her communication got shunted to my spam folder. 🙂 Thanks much for the help, I’ll let you know if I don’t hear back in a week.
        All the best,
