Her twitter account wasn't deleted, it was suspended. What did she do to get the account suspended?

She must have left the business. Her web site redirects to a Japanese wedding site, and her twitter account has been deleted

Just queried Kate regarding a manuscript I submitted in September, and she said the same thing. It's on her website as well.
No more fiction. Only craft projects.

"Thanks for your interest in working with me. I’m about to update my website to this effect, but I wanted to let you know that I have decided that, effective immediately, Epstein Literary will only accept new projects in the area of crafts."

So there you have it. Bummer.

At DorothyDryer, I submitted to Ms. Unter on 10/6/12, a YA historical fantasy. No word yet, of course, but I'll update if I do.

Oops. Never saw that she wasn't open to fiction (it didn't say on her website!) and I queried her 9/12. I guess I should assume this is a no, huh?!

Wait a minute... this is OLD information. In case anyone else is confused, this is what her website says NOW:

As of June 25, 2012, I am considering new clients solely in the categories of crafts and fiction for young people. Please see my guidelines page for details.
