4/30/19 - First query
5/10/19 - Acceptance
5/14/19 - Personalized rejection email. He said that he'd read up till about page 200. Additionally, he included a ton of feedback and comments on my manuscript--which was obviously much appreciated by yours truly.

Form letter rejection. Bummer.

Dear Jerry,

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.
