Wait a minute. Where did Bill go? Any ideas? He was the fastest rejector on Querytracker and it was always fun to read the comments here.

EQ: 6/10 @ 10:30am
At 10:40am, he replied that he's not taking on new clients at this time. Useful info, so I thought I'd share!

I just got the following reply to my query:

'Thanks for the query. But I am not taking any new clients at this time. I wish you all the best. Bill Contardi'

So, I guess he is closed.

This guy is quick. Rejection in minutes. Much appreciated, though; at least he has the courtesy to respond.

Queried out of curiosity because of the comments about his speedy rejection turnaround, and am laughing because I received a rejection exactly 7 minutes after sending the email! :-)

slyceej, Middle grade is listed on his website. You have to be careful with AgentQuery these days they haven't been as attentive with keeping their listings current.

EQ 1/18/19 (Diplomatic Immunity)--same day rejection (not right for him).

Reject in less than an hour. Doubt he even read the complete query letter.

Lightning fast rejection. It's neat that he looks them over so quickly. Middle-Grade (36,000 words).
