Personalized note with feedback, but he also got my name wrong and the title of my novel wrong. Twice. So maybe the rejection was for the best :)

Full request rejected after a couple of weeks. No comments, but at least he didn't keep me waiting forever.

Went over the MS completely over the last two weeks and found some broken hyperlinks--fixed those and made some other minor edits. Emailed the revised file today. I sure don't miss taking my manuscript boxes to the P.O. to mail out at the media rate.

Overnight request for Proposal and full ms. Mr. de Spoelberch has only seen my query letter, which I've honed and edited again and again for months. I'm happy and humbled--this is the agent who repped "Deliverance."!

Email query: 05/25/2021 (Western/Action/Adventure/Historical)
Request for full manuscript: 05/28/2021
Email submission: 05/28/2021
Email rejection: 06/08/2021 -- Mr. de Spoelberch's reply was both gracious and encouraging, saying he regretted he didn't think he would be my novel's best agent advocate. He gave a suggestion for improvement, for which I am grateful.
