Mr. Galen responded immediately. He was very kind and informed me he was closed to new clients at the present. Very nice comments and wished me luck.

Coming back for a moment, It seems like this agent has a hit or miss record with responses. Some have gotten immediate rejections, some have gotten responses after a few months.
I... Since my initial query I have not heard a thing and it's been 1312 days as of today (July 22, 2021) even after revision and wordcount updates sent out.

Mr. Galen told me in a very kind rejection letter - he loved my title so I will take that - that they are not open to new clients until *maybe* the end of the year. I have no idea how anyone will know what their timeline is since they are not specific on their website, but I would assume at least for the summer, they are not accepting new clients. Hope this helps!

Ugh, all these reports about how they aren't actually open to new clients, despite no such statements on their official website. How are we to know when their status changes? Should we resubmit again then? Are they just deleting everything that comes in for now?

@bckinney, agreed, I am so nervous about querying this agent even though he is my dream agent.
