His Twitter 17 Nov:

Hello brilliant people. I am going to be CLOSED TO QUERIES for the month of December. Queries sent during that time will be deleted automatically. Thank you for your patience, and I look forward to reading your work in January! (Still open through the rest of Nov.)

Thanks ClockPrince. I'm almost certain that wasn't there when I opened him up the other day. Almost.

I think he has reopened to queries—his Twitter post said he was just closing for the month of August, and he isn't listed as closed on the Folio website anymore.

Accidentally sent even though he's closed, then sent apology email next day. First time I've made that mistake! I think I'm getting a little too tunnel vision with my querying... embarrassing to think I might be coming off as unprofessional and sort of tarnishing my project in his eyes. oh well... I've made dumber querying mistakes (I'm sorry to say).
