Hello, I am new to the volunteer editor program, but I seem to be having the same problem. Though I have not been waiting for 6 weeks only 1 week. I have sent a follow up email just to check in and see if they had received my book and what the time frame was on a response, but I have not received a response either. I don't want to seem pushy especially that they are doing this as volunteers but I think I will follow sr71plt suggestion and just find another editor and state the name of the editor. I feel like I am rating someone out though.
My editor is Aimii, I hope all it is is that they are to busy.
Anyway, I will take a look a the available editors list and hope I found someone willing to read my book. Thank you for the advice.
My editor Aimii finally responded. They were swamped with work and apologized. So we will move forward. Hopefully it works well. Thank you to AsylumSeeker for being the only one to respond to my request for another editor.
