@Belle_91 On the agency website, they said they were closed for the holidays until 4 January. So yes, open for Jan queries, but after the 4th.

I queried her at the appropriate email, but got back a reply saying she's closed to queries except by referral. So....I'm not sure if my query went through. It said she was open to general submissions starting Jan. 1 and I queried her on Jan. 2

On 10/28/15, I queried her with Venom. I did get an out of office message and then nudged her two weeks ago. It's CNR. I'll try her in March with Chain Reaction.

5/11/16--On 3/25/16, I've queried her with Chain Reaction. Two weeks ago, I've nudged her. It's CNR. I'll try Sandra Bishop this summer with Venom.
