MG fairytale retelling

At least she was speedy!

I got a confirmation email in June so I'm pretty sure she still sends them.
Middle Grade humor that she requested at a conference.
I sent a "nudge" after 8 weeks because she was busy. I heard back within 3 hours of the nudge. She was very nice about it.
Got a polite rejection. They're so professional at Writer's House. Too bad they don't like my work!

KFThorsness I queried today as well and I believe it went through. Nothing bounced back but I did not receive a confirmation either. (from what I can tell, it doesn't appear she sends a confirmation email?)

My emailed query was bounced back. Has anyone had luck getting one through? (Wondering if she still has a filter from when she was closed or if it's an issue specific to me)

Hi Patrick, based on Lindsay's PM (***Please note that I am closed to submissions until August 15th. I would love to read your query after this time, and so please do send it to me once I reopen. Any queries received during this time will be deleted.***), it looks like she may be open to queries again.

EQ 5/5
Replies to all queries within three weeks. When I didn't hear from Ms. Auld, I sent a friendly follow-up email on 5/20. The same day, she replied with a kind and personalized version of her form rejection. She is a consummate professional and exceedingly kind.
