Quick rejection. Submitted memoir query earlier today, just received this: "Thank you for your query. But this is not right for me. I wish you all the best."

One hour later; super impressive speed! I'd recommend querying, if only to see! :)

Looking at the Data Explorer, it looks like he just skipped right over my MG manuscript. He's responded one way or the other to just about every query that came in after and before mine. Wondering about a nudge? Maybe he didn't get mine?

Very quick response. Not even an hour after sending the query. Form response though. "Thank you for your query. But this is not right for me. I wish you all the best. Bill Contardi"
