Auto Reply: Many thanks for contacting Darhansoff & Verrill Literary Agents. Due to volume, we are no longer replying to each individual query submitted for our review. We will be in touch only if we are interested in reading your work. If you haven't heard from us within 8-10 weeks, it is safe to say that we have passed on the opportunity and wish you the best of luck elsewhere.

This woman is either retired or in a profound sleep. She does not respond to even the best queries.
Hey, agents, if you are retired, have the decency to say you are not accepting manuscripts.
You show massive contempt for authors by continuing to post your sleeping agent sites. You waste our time and our hope out of sheer laziness.
Just say you are not taking queries, Michelle Mortimer. Do you know how much time I spent crafting a query specifically for you!
