He's an incredibly fast responder (is he known for causing CNRs?), so I'm not sure what's up.

EQ: 5th June. I couldn't find any concrete proof of what he wants in a query so I sent the query letter and nothing else. Will update this for others if I find out anything.

very nice form, same as others below:
Thanks for contacting me about your work. Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s quite a fit for me as an agent. However, I would encourage you to continue contacting other agents about your project, as often it’s just a matter of getting the material in front of enough people before you connect with someone who’ll be excited to represent it on your behalf.
And of course, I wish you all the best of success with your work going forward.

Super frustrated. Closing a lot with no reply. Has anyone tried Wattpad? I want to be careful with my choices here, but if anyone has an opinion on it I'd like to hear it.
