I've tried to submit a query to her and to the general submissions email at Paradigm but have gotten my email bounced back. No attachments. Anyone know why this might be?

@wordgirl251 I just copy-pasted the "books" email and wrote "ATTN: Alyssa Reuben," no error message.

I have tried to send queries to both Alyssa and Katelyn and the generic "books" email address. All three have been rejected by a mailer-daemon. Has anyone sent a successful query to this agency? I'm not doing anything strange with the email either and this is the only time this has ever happened. I'm not sending any attachments ... nothing like that. It's really odd!

This is what the technical error says:

Which email address to use? Agency website says to use books@paradigmagency.com, but on her manuscriptwishlist.com page it says to use areuben@paradigmagency.com -- i assume both are okay, but would one be better than the other?
