A form letter about the agency not wanting my manuscript from an agent I didn't query. Very impersonal.

She recently hired a new assistant and is apparently behind (I sent my query to the official e-mail, and then sent my follow-up to the Laura@ one, mentioning I was just checking to make sure I had sent my query to the right location). I sent mine in on 03/21/18, so I would give her a little more patience. :)

The website says to send to queries@... an earlier message here said Laura has stated on Twitter and other places to query to Laura@...
I q'd to queries@ and got no response (their site also says you may query another agent only AFTER receiving a response from the first). After reading the comment here re: sending directly to Laura, I gave that a shot with a second piece, and got this back:
"Please check the query submission guidelines on our website for the correct addresses for querying any of our agency agents, http://www.bradfordlit.com/submission-guidelines/

Thank you,

Laura Bradford"

So... moral of the story, it sounds like her notes to query directly to Laura@ were probably in relation to a twitter pitch or similar, and not for unsolicited queries.

Guess I'll mark these guys down as CNR and move on.
