4/17 No response, though the QueryTracker timeline shows other recent queries getting same-day responses. *helpless hand-wave of despair*

He teaches several workshops a year and I had the opportunity to sit on a couple. He is very passionate about the writing world and has high expectations, but his agency sells the highest number of novels per year than any other. He is a busy man and must find it difficult to check his numerous queries.
