Thank you so much for your submission, which I greatly appreciate.
While your project is interesting, I'm sorry to report that does not appear to be a good fit for my list at this time, and so I will have to pass.
Thank you for considering me and best of luck with your future queries.

EQ sent (This query was sent in response to a July post on Chuck Sambuchino's GTLA blog. It will be interesting to see how she responds, since officially she is closed to queries)

I queried her today because I had a referral from another agent. I got an automated reply about being closed to queries - hopefully they look close at the subject line.

UPDATE - She wrote back a friendly note saying she will look at my submission soon.

I sent a query in November, got the automated response, and then got a note saying they look forward to reading (the 15 pages, the synopsis, enclosed per their guidelines)

As of December 1st they won't take queries, so anything prior to that should be in their "to be looked at pile." Simple as that.

So does that mean any queries sent in November will be considered? Or should we just close it out? Hmm... *cursor hovers over update status button*
