Thanks kathleea. Her website was updated to say she was open. But now it says closed again, so I'm guessing their web developer jumped the gun.

Patrick, on the Updated Agents form it says she's open but I got an email back saying she's closed until sometime in 2021.

C/ping this from Marietta Zacker's entry since I interacted predominantly with Erin in that query process--

EQ 5/27/18
PR (!) 6/13/18 from Erin Casey on behalf of Marietta Zacker
sent 6/13/18
Upgraded to FR 6/29/18 (wow, super fast)
sent 6/29/18

Passed 8/10/18 with the most wonderful, helpful, thorough critique I have ever received unsolicited in the query process. Erin was really able to specifically identify where certain places fell apart and why, and those were extremely helpful. Such an excellent process, and I'd rather have these critiques now in the query process than later on Goodreads, yeah? ;-)

Absolutely would resubmit again, and I hope to after a thorough edit.

Update: have had further discussions with Erin Casey and after I told her I was doing a thorough edit/rewrite and asked if she would be interested, she replied that she would like an exclusive on an edit. Eventually did this and re-submitted and--while the edits didn't work for her--she provided a lovely rejection once again that stung but was also incredibly accurate. So disappointed that it didn't work out, but so grateful for all of my interactions with Erin. She was patient, had excellent feedback, kind and generous with her spirit and time, and her feedback turned this project into such good shape that when I queried my now-agent, she loved it and signed me.

Thanks for everything, Erin!
