EQ 5/14, PB author-illustrator. Since the timeline doesn't show anything other than CNRs for the past year, I'm not holding my breath!

6/4 In my email tracker, it says he's never even opened the email. I wish agents who say they're open would update their status if they're actually not considering queries.
