The submissions page asks to inform them if we receive interest from other agents. Do we think this includes full requests? Agency guidelines usually specify we should notify them of offers, so I'm wondering if "interest" is meant to be more general.

I don't blame him for not replying, having ten queries sent to you within 90 days must be an overwhelming task to manage.

@DrCCat as AA are based in the UK, i think that means they were closed over the christmas holidays until january 4th - i imagine they had forgotten to take the out of office message off their email. however, they don't seem very responsive at all in general so it is hard to know??

Site wasn't updated and received this message after submitting the requirements: "The office will be closed from 18/12/2020 until 04/01/2021 so please bear with us, as we will not be reading submissions during this time."
I don't know if they are still closed or what.
