Hi cdblep,
Then agents control their QueryManager forms directly, so it was closed by them. Sorry.

@cdblep Judging from the number of agents closing their doors to queries, the 'Christmas Crush' in publishing is on. So much so that I recommend you wait until next year when the holidays are over. And even if you did query, chances are it'll be put on the back burner until 2023.

Fair warning.

Hi, Mr. Miller-Callihan's twitter says he's open through 12/1/22. Any chance this was closed early and we can get our submission in today?

EQ 4/7/22 ... sort of. I queried Ms. Courtney Miller-Callihan and she politely passed me over to Ben, who she thinks may click better with the ms.

Nicer form letter rejection than most.
