Did anyone get a confirmation email from him when you sent your query? I didn't and I'm just wondering if that's normal.

Hi Wondering. He mentions picture books at, but I now see what you mean about his PM specifically saying no picture books. I'll contact him for clarification. Thanks for the info.

Patrick, his agency bio and Publishers Marketplace say he is not interested in picture book submissions. Has something changed?
