Sorry afouse. It is the address listed on their website, but I confirmed that it is bouncing back as non-existent. I'm going to mark the agency closed to queries until things can be figured out. Thank you.

@Patrick - Yes. Email bounced because the mailbox was full. Same problem others had.

willwrite4chocolate, did it give a reason for the bounce? For instance, sometimes it'll be because the inbox is full.

On 11/25/15, I've requeried James with Venom. After a two week nudge with no word, it's CNR. I'll try him with Chain Reaction this spring.

I did send it to him via that email, but it bounced back. So I sent it to him via his email address which worked. I've added a note about the other email.
