Their website indicates that he only takes referral queries. Should I bother sending a query?

@jone4046: Lane is my agent and yes, he's still in business. (Though I have no idea why he hasn't responded to your latest nudges, I do know he's very busy.)

Form rejection response the day after I submitted my query:

Dear Kimberly,

I hate to say this is going to be a pass as THE PLACE BETWEEN does not sound like a fit for me at this time.

Thank you for considering The Tobias Literary Agency, and please do stay the querying course as this industry is highly subjective.

Best of luck with your future queries,

Lane Heymont, AAR
