I did, but didn't get anything negative back, yet. Thought I'd give it a whirl just see. Sometimes things are messed up ya know? But anyway, if he is I won't have to worry about a rejection hey! heehee Thanks Angelscribe for looking out for me.

"Closed for Good" - took a look at their website and it doesn't say anything though, when you look at the website, its a website in progress and its going to be a e-publisher - so perhaps they are converting to becoming an e-publisher? Though, they really should update their website s so people don't email queries.

Perhaps Patrick will have more luck finding something out?

I just queried today and got the following autoresponse:

"The Agency will close for good- Jan 1st 2013. Please visit and check out our terrific list of authors."

Oh, well.

6/22/12, I requeried Venom again. As of last month, belatedly, no response to my nudge. I might try him again in 2013.

I agree--the instructions are confusing. The first two steps indicate email and then switches to the online form. I used the online form.

EQ: 9/4/2012--cozy mystery
