2 paragrah rejection 1/7/17.

2nd paragraph was a form rejection, but the first paragraph mentioned details of my book and that he'd researched me oline. I'm thrilled he was interested enough to take time to look into it further. My website tracker showed he'd visited numerous pages and came in from my LinkedIn profile. So for anyone querying, make sure you have a polished and public LinkedIn profile.

ER: 10/08 Requested first 15,000 words
Thank you for your query. It’s difficult for me to reach a decision about your novel without reading a sample. Why not send me the first 15,000 words or so and I’ll let you know if I care to see the rest.
Sincerely,
Michael Congdon
EM: 10/08 Sent first six chapters
ER: 10/16 Request for remaining chapters
While I feel your good dialogue should be balanced by more narrative (you rely too heavily on the former), I’m interested in reading the rest of SMITHEE’S ASYLUM.
Sincerely,
Michael Congdon
