Artzicarol - I queried her via the form at the end of March and have written it off as a CNR, but maybe there's still hope! Congratulations!

mbowman, I emailed her back at the email she told me to send my full to three times now and still no response. So I'm not sure. This is the same email that is listed on their site. It shouldn't be connected to the form. Amanda[at]donaghyliterary[dot]com

Allis, I have had the same problem. She requested me before they put the form in place and I have tried nudging three times with no response. I can't DM her on Twitter and I can't use the contact form for her since they turned it off. I am wondering how best to proceed. Wondering if its bad form to email someone else in the agency about this.
