Got the same auto response. Closed, even though her PM profile says she reopened on 9/8.I did not catch on the Folio site that she's supposedly closed, because it didn't say so on her personal bio/guidelines page. I see it now, under her picture on the page where they're all listed together.

Whatever. This is the second time in three days I've gotten CLOSED when the website didn't indicate (nothing but a pinned tweet in that case). I'm pretty fed up.

I also got the auto reply that she was still closed. The folio website still shows her closed as well, even though publishers marketplace says she planned on opening. I sent a tweet requesting her status.

I just sent her a query and got back an autoreply saying she was still closed. So...not sure what the story is.

EQ: 4/6/20
CNR: 7/27/20 - I think I queried her while she wasn't accepting queries (see below)

SF Space Opera, 103k words - I didn't realize "on hiatus" on Twitter might mean not accepting queries. I thought it meant she was on a Twitter hiatus! I guess we'll see.

Originally queried Rachel in January 2019 after meeting her in June 2019. Never got a response, so I assumed it was a reject.

Then, this past January (2020) while participating in #IWSGPit, Rachel's assistant, who had control of her Twitter account during the Pitch session, liked my tweet which was an invitation to query. I sent the query as requested again just to see what, if anything, would happen. Still received no response.

When I queried her on 04/15/2020 I got a receipt of confirmation saying she was still reading at this time. So I think she's open for queries.

Is she back open for queries? Her twitter profile says "on hiatus." Thanks so much.
