domberoonie - does he still ask for the writing sample? I couldn't find that anywhere on their website. Argh.

10/08/2019 - submitted literary fiction with first chapter.
Agency web guidelines say no response in 4 - 6 weeks means no.
His videos on youtube say not to specify the word count -- not sure if he's talking only about for a really long novel. The 2014 video gets specific on what he wants to see in queries. He says he expects the plot summary section to be not that great, so he looks mostly at the first paragraph (why you're submitting to him) and the final BIO paragraph for publishing history, though he'll consider debut novels. He's mostly interested in the writing sample (first chapter).
