FQ: 9/9/22 Narrative Non-Fiction/True Crime
FR: 10/31/22 Nice note from Noah-I'm guessing he's an intern? Also, I guess this is a rejection from the whole agency?

Catsamoa79, They are switching over to QueryManager. I'm working on updating their profiles now.

Patrick - Does this agent want you to email him directly or use the Query Manager form, as directed under their submission instructions?

Got another offer, and he hadn’t been responding to my last few nudging emails so I emailed I was closing out the submission and marked this as closed / no response.

I wouldn't recommend querying this agent. From my own experience and from the comments below, he requests fulls but then never replies. It's a real heart breaker to keep hoping for months for an answer.

EQ: 1/21/2016
RF: 1/21/2016
And then no reply ever, even with a variety of politely spaced nudges.

EQ 3/4/17 (requery Venom)
CNR 6/26/17 (No word from 2 nudges, the first from paternity leave.) Will retry Laney with Venom next month.
