Q: 5 March
Full Request: 5 May
Rejection: 20 July

Very thoughtful, kind, and genuinely helpful feedback. Outlined all of the things he liked, and gave a specific reason--with revision suggestions--for his rejection. Seems like a great person to work with.

Just posted on Twitter that he is closed. Does not mention when he will re-open to queries:

"I wasn't intending it so quickly, but I am closing to submissions again. If I have currently received your query, you will receive a response. Unfortunately, any submissions I receive while closed will not be considered."

Queried 3/15
Rejected 5/16 with a positive note about my premise and title, but didn't resonate with my two main characters. 23 betas loved them so I have to chalk it up to personal preference. But I did appreciate the feedback.

He posted yesterday on Twitter:
Just a heads up that I will be closed to queries after Friday, April 22. I have a lot of quality projects that deserve attention.
But keep an eye on my #MSWL. There will be some changes coming, to reflect better my current projects and what I'm really enjoying right now.

Jared's rejection letter was personalized, honest, and helpful. He gave me a couple tips for improvement and was open to me re-submitting down the road once my revisions were completed. It took him a little while to respond but I wasn't treated like a number.
