@thephrygian, sorry to hear that--as much as we talk about earning our stripes via rejections, it doesn't make it any easier, especially when you were in limbo for so long. :( At least it's a clear answer rather than a lingering question mark, I guess. Good luck with your other queries!

Thanks for the tip, Kristen, but check the dates. I've been waiting for over a year.

@ moxleyhood: I did nudge a couple times, via Twitter (when she's closed to queries, the emails bounce). As recently as a few days ago, which ultimately resulted in a rejection today.

@thephrygian, have you nudged her about your full? You probably have, but if not, you should. :) Historical mystery/adventure sounds cool!

Congrats, the Phrygian! You have to wait 3-6 months for a full's response time. Read her sub guidelines. Wait until August to nudge her and keep querying. Plus, that word count is too high too!

Form rejection letter. And ten days shy of a year? Do yourselves a favor and don’t query.

Queried her this morning (5/15) based on web/twitter announcement that she would be open.

Website states they re-opened for queries on Oct 8th, although Alice Speilburg is not accepting them until Spring 2019.

Thank you, flyblown, and sorry about the trouble. They must have changed their minds about opening but haven't updated their website yet. I'll mark them as closed again while I check into it.
