Not the result I wanted, but nonetheless very polite. Sent me a few words of encouragement.

I guess it was too much to hope that I'd be repped by the same agent as Brandon Sanderson.

If he gets back to me I'll report it here. But I think I can guess it's a 'no'.

Very nice form rejection.

It must be a record. I sent Mr. Schneider a query at 3am last night and got a polite but firm rejection form letter at 10am this morning. (Makes me wonder if I missed some mistake or blunder or broke protocol in some way to make it such a swift negation.)

Strange. He's rejected five queries that were sent in the two weeks since I sent mine -- but he hasn't responded to mine AND he's ignored my nudge with an offer. Closing this guy out.

Mine has been with him for 67 days, with a nudge partway through, so I'd say he actually is missing / skipping some queries. Unsure whether to try again, or just write this one off.

EDIT: Heard back with a form rejection after 80 days - suspect everyone else here is right and he just struck a vein of missed queries in his spam folder!

Can't find my original note:
I closed this out months ago and received a form rejection over the weekend. He must have found me in a spam folder.

Queried on June 8th of 2018, got a form rejection April 20th of 2019, so long after I had marked as CNR that I didn’t recognize the name! Still, I do appreciate a real rejection even after so long.

Form response 55 days from query. Disappointing, however, I know there was a lot wrong with my query letter so I appreciate at least getting a response.

@fordwalker

I've been with him for 50 days. I would write it off, but he's responded so fast to other people, maybe through an assistant. We may have made it through the initial screening? I'm from the short story circuit, so long wait times are generally a good omen. Anyway... Send out other queries and nudge ifI get an offer elsewhere. That seems to be the best way to respond. I've only queried 6 agents to far and I am waiting on 4 for upward if two months now. I'm sick of it, but the only forward movement is to keep reaching out... blegh

jasmine09, I personally would not nudge until after the kind of standard 8 weeks. Some agents don't read queries in order, and lots of them keep some aside for later consideration if they think they might be interested. Other people might disagree, but I'd wait to nudge until 8 weeks. Personally, I usually wait even longer.
