Hi. For those agents who are not accepting unsolicited queries mpw, do we pass on them and save them for the end of our list later?

You pass. Your query will not be read.
May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face,and rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, may no spiders fall on your head.

No unsolicited queries means you cannot send a query to them without express invitation to do so.

OKay thanks. I just wasn't sure, esp. like for Gelfman Schneider-no for Deborah, but yes for Jane.  They're off my list and will be replaced.

Sometimes one agent in an agecy will accept queries when others don't. So you don't always cross the whole agency off. :)

Okay. I know both Gelfman and Schneider are the same. Chip MacGregor and Molly Friedrich for the same. I'll check the other agencies and make new labels.
