Got Response on April 19 2021- Rejection Form Letter. He does seem busy, so that's to note. Might re query him at a different time in the year when it is less busy for him.

EQ 4/5/21
Nudge with offer of rep 4/13/21
Response 4/13/21 - polite step aside, saying the story sounds interesting but he's very far behind on reading anything new, and his focus is much more on sci-fi than fantasy.

Usually he responds more quickly, but he explained in his rejection letter that he's very busy with existing clients lately and thus quite behind on his query reviews.

9/28/20: I couldn't find any submission guidelines on Mr. Fugate's website. Did everyone just send a query letter to his listed email address? Thanks for your help!
