I am also not sure if this agency is still active. Last deal on Publishers Marketplace is from April 2013. Decided not to query.

Anyone know if this agent/agency is still active? Most posts/comments I've found on the internet, and their Facebook page, are at least two years old.

I've seen this email address for her on the web elsewhere: Is this a querying address? Has anyone successfully queried via email? I'm not sure what to make of people who don't take email queries. Is this a sign they're very serious and want to keep out riff-raff who can't be bothered to print out a letter? Or does it mean the agent is hopelessly behind the times and might be out of touch with the industry's shift toward e-everything?

Wow, that is rough. Even 'Dear Author' is better than that.

Received a form rejection that began: "Dear Sir or Madam."
I do not expect much from an agent that I am sending a query letter to, but it would be nice if they could take the time to notice whether I am male or female. At the very least they could leave that line off of their standard form letter. It kind of rendered everything else in the letter meaningless.

Oh well. Perhaps it was a blessing in disguise. I will find someone I am sure.

On 1/19, I've sent them a query. Today, I got the same postcard rejection reply, stating "although my ms is interesting, it's not appropriate for my list."

On 4/12, I've sent her my query. Today, I've heard back from them. Same response as in January. See above.

My partial did arrive there and I got an email a week later asking for the full manuscript, which I sent yesterday by snail mail.
