Unfortunately, we were in the direct path of Hurricane Sally and are still waiting for the return of our internet (doing all this from my spotty cell service on my phone). Informed him of the technological issues and he said that was more than fine and he would wait. Will update this when I am back up and running and able to send out fulls again.

I queried because so many before me said he give really good rejection letters, I was kinda bummed when I saw that he no longer responds anymore unless interested. I'm just going to close this out unless proven otherwise

Expecting a rejection. I misinterpreted the 'description' section and realised after I'd sent it. My apologies to Jon if he reads these comments.

Loveliest rejection of my life, would have queried simply for that rejection. Echoing the others below!

Agent Tweeted apologetically 12/19/2020 that he's caught up with all 2020 submissions, and "I’m very sorry but no response = a pass." Closed out, categorized as rejection.

He also added a note for SFF writers! I recommend checking out his feed. He seems so nice! Congratulations to everyone who caught his eye.

PitMad like and query sent on 12/3
Rejection on 12/11

Jon's rejection email was probably the nicest rejection email I've ever read. He was incredibly thoughtful and had a lot of positive things to say about my work before getting into why it wasn't the best fit for him. He wasn't on my radar for querying prior to PitMad, but now he's 1000% on my list for my next book if I don't get rep with the current one.

I'm gonna echo what the person below me said. He rejected my query, but damn if didn't give me the nicest rejection I've seen in years.

One of the kindest passes on a full I've ever received, and with a TON of feedback too. Anyone who lands Jon as an agent is incredibly lucky!
