@carcoh I did the same thing. Her twitter (and comment below) said she was open to queries yesterday. So I guess we will see what happens.

I queried her yesterday through her online form. 24hrs later and she's closed again...anyone know if that was a glitch or something? I checked Twitter and can't find anything about her announcing she was open. At the time I thought maybe it was a "soft open" so she wouldn't get flooded, but it was such a brief window that I'm not sure!

Very nice response...
Thank you for your query. I appreciate the opportunity to consider X for possible representation. It's clear that you've put a lot of time and effort into this manuscript. Unfortunately, I did not connect with the story in the way I hoped and must regretfully pass. Of course, this is a subjective business and others may feel differently so I encourage you to continue querying other agents who may be a better match for your projects. Thanks again for the chance to read and I wish you all the best on your writing journey.
