Instant Auto-reply to E-Query sent 19 December 2017:

Thank you so much for your email. If you've sent us a query, we promise we’ll be reviewing each submission, but please understand that due to the volume of emails we receive, it is now our policy to respond (usually within four to six weeks) only if we are interested in seeing more material. Furthermore, Courtney Gatewood and Rebecca Gardner are closed to queries.

If you are reaching out with an author request, rights inquiry, or other business matter, we will try to be in touch as soon as possible.

Thanks again for thinking of us. We sincerely wish you all the best.

Warm regards,

The Gernert Company

Very nice. Queried snail-mail and got a response in 3 days. Unfortunately took her four months to respond to complete (which she declined).
