EQ: 6/6/22 (in spite of QT saying closed, nothing on website) 115K literary fiction; same auto response "I am away from the office"; worth a try

ER two days later: the same rejection as brendanpgallaher's, "No thank you, but thank you for writing to me about _____"; though a form response its brevity and frankness feel, er, novel! ;-)

Can't complain about the turnaround and the reply was rather amusing "No thank you, but thank you." Bio on his website suggests he is open to queries, but Query Tracker indicates closed which may be reason for some of the confusion from prior commenters.

moblitas... I know this thread is from forever ago, but if you place your fingers like your gonna type, move them over a key to the right each, then type "white" without looking, it indeed becomes "wjote." Lol, I figured that was it because I do that sometimes. :)
