kgerardneill, since the website says she is now open, my guess is that she is, but she forgot to turn off her auto responder. But, if you don't hear back after a reasonable amount of time, go ahead and requery.

Submitted to Amanda Preston this day (9 Jan) after seeing from Administrator that Amanda was open to submissions again, This was confirmed when I saw a submission email address for her on the LBA website. Imagine my surprise when I sent my submission in, only to get an auto-reply that she is still closed and all submissions are still being discarded. Please advise.

Ms Preston has a phenomenal reputation, so to get offered representation by an agent of her standing would be amazing! Here's hoping...!
