There was a tweet from her client William Gibson that Ms. Millard announced her retirement on August 15th. I'm seriously bummed to hear it.

8/2/18 Did anyone get a black screen after pressing "submit" on the form? Did you receive an auto email saying your query was received? I didn't and I'm not sure mine went through.

Must be a pretty awesome agent if she's able to read a synopsis and three chapters in four minutes. Quickest rejection to date, likely of any author lol.

Looks like her agency now has an online form for submissions that you can use in addition to snail mail.

sarahhawley, I received an email from Ms. Millard in November of 2017 stating that she was not accepting queries via email.

Update: 1/3/17 She had said it might take "a week to ten days to read". I thought that was kind of an unreasonable expectation to set, but I haven't heard anything. Was nice to get the full request, but now just waiting.
