EQ: 10/23
ER: 10/24

Not sure if it was a form, doesn't seem to be. Just a simple 1-2 sentence reply from her, not from an assistant:

"Thank you for your query. I can’t help, but I do wish you all the best for success with your work."

I was surprised she herself responded at all because it's kinda confusing that even though this agency accepts snail mail only, there's at least 3 of their agents that are exceptions.

stargrey, her AAR profile (Association of Author's Representatives) does say she accepts email queries. You can find the link on the "Main" tab.

This is marked as email queries, but they only accept mail at this agency.

They have two new agents apparently--Brian Egan and Nell Pierce.

Also, the agency does not take email queries.

EQ: 7/5. Received an "Automatic reply" minutes later, but it was empty. Not sure what's up with that.
