@sara_gilbert_writes I queried the agency submission email 76 days ago and haven't got a response, so maybe try her personal? (Please report back if you do and you get a response)

can someone tell me which email to send my query to? lol. i saw one or two things saying her personal email (that she likes to manage her own queries), and others saying to send to the agency submission email. I dont know which one to follow and i'd rather not get on anyone's bad side lol

She's FAST! and a Valentine's Day rejection.
She's blunt:
Thank for your query. I’m afraid this isn’t for me.
Good luck,

"Sorry it has taken me a while to respond. I'm afraid I'm a bit swamped at the moment so will have to pass."

Really would have preferred a form rejection to that nothing sandwich.
