Sent David a query yesterday, 10/11. 145k suspense, thriller, sci-fi
He sent me an encouraging personalized letter today, 10/12.
I appreciate the time and effort, even though, it was a pass.
Often, we must continue on. It isn't that our work is weak, but that we haven't found that "perfect teammate" yet. I personally binge myself on reviews before making purchase of a book series. I don't expect more from anyone else. And, it's difficult to relate to someone in only a brief sampling of my work. It would be hypocritical for me to be upset.

According to the 2019 Guide to Literary Agents (Writer's Digest Books), he just wants a query letter, to begin with.

@bevett1964 I couldn't either. I used the standard query letter, synopsis and first chapter. I haven't been rejected yet but it was only sent last month.

Good luck. :-)

I can't find the submission guidelines for this agency. Any idea what to send from somebody who's sent a query?
