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.

Hi bckinney,
I don't know why it is, but Olswanger agents are never listed on the Olswanger website other than the agency founder Anna Olswanger. Strange, I know. But that's how they do it.

Does anyone know if this guy is legitimate? He has a nice personal website, but I don't see any mention of him on his supposed agency website. And his twitter account seems to have been deleted in the last two months.
