Had the same experience as others with query@jamesliteraryagency.com -- it bounced back. Sent to nicole@jamesliteraryagency.com, hope that went through!

Her website doesn't indicate what she expects (e.g. pages, synopsis) along with Query. Does anyone here know?

With a grand total of 2 query responses in the past year, whether it's bouncing emails or indifference, I suspect we're all looking at the same fate!

@rhmae_me - Nor did I. Sometimes a bounce like that means it's been filtered, but her site doesn't mention any specific requirements for subject lines and mine had "Query" in it anyway.

...And a look at the headers shows that, indeed, the error was "Message blocked because it contains content identified as spam." I'm at a loss - it's the same one I've been sending out, no attachments, nothing unusual.

Mine went through at the query address... I think! I didn't get a notification otherwise
