I don't think he tries to respond to every query. I queried on 4/14/20 and am assuming it's no. I don't want to close the query, in case it's still in his slush pile. But, not expecting anything. I'm surprised Ociopia got a nice rejection.

Really want to hear his opinion even if it is just a rejection. Does he normally respond quickly?

A very nice, personally written rejection next day.
He's looking always for very specific themes at the time.

4/1: kind reply saying he is not reading manuscripts at the moment given the current situation.

Hey, y'all! I did a follow up, and the agency is on pause for taking YA at the moment! He's so kind and quick. Good luck!

Nudged a while back. No follow-up. He seems to be super fast when interested, so I'm going to CNR this one!

Long shot but, hey, doesn't hurt to try
