Not sure why everyone got quick responses while I've gotten nothing. Nudged, going to CNR this anyway lol.

6/22 Wow, he actually responded to my nudge! He apologized for my manuscript slipping by, added "this is why I always tell writers email again if you haven’t heard back sometimes emails get lost in the mix of things" and said he'll look over my first chapter this weekend, and that he'll get back to me next week. Very nice of him! When nudges so rarely get responded to, this was a lovely surprise, and especially from someone like him who is quick to say no thanks.

6/26 FR!! He had some reservations, but wanted to see how the story progressed. Grateful for him taking a deeper look.

7/9 ER Personalized response, confirmed that he read it over the holiday weekend. He wasn't helpful or anything, all I got from him was that his vision for it was just entirely different from other agents who read the full. Kind of confused me, honestly, like I didn't quite get his interpretation at all, and tbh I don't think he got it either. All in all, he was vague, it was like the whole thing went over his head. Oh well. Overall a professional, quick, and pleasant experience, though.

30 minutes - he's certainly shortening up his response times.

Many thanks for your note. This material doesn't seem quite right for me, but I'm sure other agents will feel differently. I wish you the best of luck elsewhere and many thanks again for the opportunity to read your work.

Silly me. I misspelled his name in the query letter. (Cordona instead of Cardona). I didn't notice it until I went through my query list again. I hope that's not the only reason why he rejected me.
