Does anyone know how to nudge Ayesha Pande Literary with an offer? Should I use the website contact form?

As others mentioned, no email confirmation of query receipt. Also, the agency's query form is extremely frustrating, since it doesn't copy/paste any formatting.

Did anyone get an automatic confirmation email after submitting via APL's website? I did not.

Seeing the replies now about no confirmations-- thanks everyone!

@MegTravel, no, I didn't get a confirmation email. A bit nerve-wrecking, but we will see. I sent the query on 5/26

Query sent. Though I do wish that if agencies are going to use forms, they use Query Manager forms. APL isn't the only agency with a form that just butchers all formatting in their sample pages section.

Claxton, that was probably an error. Since anyone can add clients, sometimes people get confused.
