Email query: January 2, 2020
I received an immediate automatic reply that the agency is closed until January 6, 2020. I didn't see this information anywhere else, so I hope this doesn't hurt my chances of getting my query read.

She asked for my full mss a few years ago, but I pulled it back (with her approval) after I received some useful suggestions. Recently, I re-emailed her to see whether I should submit it after two years. I didn't include the query itself but mentioned the bare basics and told her I would re-send the query upon request. She rejected my request, but in language that suggests she didn't read the query. It stated something like "Thanks for thinking of me, but this query is not right for my list at this time."
I respect her for responding to all of her queries, and realize I probably caught her earlier in her career the first time, before she got too inundated. Also, she seems to have particularized her focus more than she had at first, more toward fantasy. Mine is more of a literary mystery/thriller.
