Thank you domberoonie, I hadn't thought of that, but this is the first time I've queried an agent at P.S. Literary for this manuscript. I tried using my Yahoo email account after the gmail one said blocked and the Yahoo email went through okay. Hopefully my query isn't doubled in her inbox. Good luck with your querying!

Lemontree,
I'm wondering if you had previously submitted to any other agents at P.S. Literary. If so, your query might be ignored, on the basis of title, for that reason.
Their submissions page now states explicitly:

"Please do not query multiple agents at the agency simultaneously – if you don’t receive a response to your query within 4-6 weeks it means a no from the agency."

I submitted to agent Eric Smith there months ago and got no response. While I haven't changed my title, I have changed the book significantly, particularly the main point of view and plot line. My new query reflects these changes. I may try a different agent there now, given how different the substance of the book is. Nothing to lose.

I sent my query via email and it bounced back saying it was blocked. Has anyone had this problem? I used my gmail account. Thank you :)

Thank you WillowInc and monicakilgore; I think I'll try again from my yahoo account. It made me wonder if some of my emails have been going to spam folders because most of my queries have been skipped over by agents. Hopefully not.
