Queried Aug 21, 2020 and haven't heard anything yet... 67 days old, I should probably count this as a rejection.

@megbontra: I have had CNRs from him in the past for other projects, and twice have received a fast personal response. Maybe depends on when you catch him checking his email?

@megbontra: either you get a same day rejection or he doesn't reply, it seems.

It seems a lot of people are getting same-day rejections, but it's been 46 days for me since querying (Adult Fantasy, 160k) and I haven't heard anything - considered CNR, I guess? Do only some get same-day rejects?

EQ 9/23/20, ER same day: "I appreciate your thinking of me, but during this current situation we've decided not to add any new clients. I'm sure you will find other agencies that are in more of an expansion mode even in these times. Good luck!"

ER: 8/3/20 - Sounds good, but I'm afraid I'm not expanding my list any further into this particular area. I will have to decline.
