Polite form letter from his assistant: Thank you for your query. Dan Lazar asked me to reply after he evaluated your submission. We’re afraid your project does not seem right for our list, but thank you for thinking of Dan, and best of luck in your search for representation.

MR_Work: to your question about the auto-response, I didn't receive one, either. When I received a request for a full, it came from his assistant. I'm not sure if that's how he normally responds, ie through his assistant, or if it was because he was on vacation. Hope that helps!

EQ Sept 28. Did not receive an auto-reply confirmation - can anyone tell me if that's normal for this agent?

Even though Dan wasn't able to read the whole ms before my deadline (to respond to the first offering agent) and "stepped aside," he and his assistant Torie were very generous with their notes.
