No response to query letter (online form), after 36 days, as submitted through Elizabeth Griffen. Acknowledge and respect the disclaimer issued by Cooke Agency that states that "due to the volume of submissions we receive, we cannot personally respond to every query. We do carefully consider each submission but we will only be in touch if we want to request more material."

The Cooke Agency recently merged with Anne McDermid and Associates to form CookeMcDermid: https://mcdermidagency.com/2017/10/10/announcing-cookemcdermid/

I haven't found the new agency's website, but apparently all the agents at the two firms remain with the new outfit. Maybe new email addresses in the future but currently no changes that I can see.
