Just asked Brooks on Twitter about the confirmations. He does not believe that their system even gives out confirmations. If it does, great. If it doesn't, then he most likely has still gotten your query.

I sent Q on the 15th and got a nearly immediate confirmation.

Inktruffle, I sent mine just under 14 days ago and still haven't received a confirmation... Am wondering whether I should resend it or not?

BlaDeBla, I sent my query on the 4th and got my confirmation on the 6th. It may be delayed.

Did anyone NOT receive the automatic confirmation email from Janklow & Nesbit when they sent their query? I sent my query and received no auto confirmation. If anyone could confirm, I'd be so grateful!

ER 6/13/17 Thank you for your query. While I appreciate the opportunity to consider your work, I don't feel I connected enough with the material here to be the right agent for it

Is Brooks okay with re-querying? I sent him a very unformatted query at the end of May and have since changed it. If anyone can let me know, I'd be grateful! Thanks.

Patrick, that's what I figured, but wanted to double check. Thanks!

Hi JMonks,
I believe he closed only while he was transitioning between agencies. He is settled at Janklow & Nesbit now and open to queries. Good luck.

I'm having trouble deciding if Sherman is open for queries or not. Nothing on QueryTracker or the Janklow & Nesbit website says he's closed, but his latest blog post from February says he's closing for "a couple months" while he catches up, and that he'd post on his blog when he opened again. Nothing since then, but that was before he switched to Janklow & Nesbit. Anyone know for certain if he's open or not?
