Very sweet refusal. Due to a very full client list, she needs to be especially selective about pursuing new projects.

Current client of hers forwarded my work on 12/11 (PB)
First week of Jan 2020, it's a no.

I'm only seeing "I am not accepting physical submissions at this time." - which means don't mail a physical copy.

Her bio on Publisher's Marketplace under submissions (at the end of the page) says she's closed to queries. In the Writer's House Website, click on Agents + Submissions. Select Rebecca Sherman and Publisher's Market Place.

Standard: "I’ve reviewed your query with Rebecca and I’m sorry to say that we weren’t connecting wholeheartedly with your writing, despite its many charms, so we should step aside. We truly appreciate the look, though, and we wish you nothing but the best of luck with your future endeavors."
