If you query me during this time, you will get an auto-response that looks like this:
As of December 4, 2015, I am closed to queries. I will reopen to queries January 15, 2016.
I'm sorry to say that I cannot respond to queries sent during this time.
The exceptions will be: work that I've already requested, conference or webinar material, and client or editor referrals. If this is you, please be sure you've said so, along with the word Query, IN THE SUBJECT LINE of your email. Otherwise, your query will be deleted.
For all other regular queries, please feel free to try any of my colleagues at andreabrownlit.com, or else try me again after January 15.
Thanks again for thinking of me with regard to your work.
Wishing you all the best, and Happy Holidays!
