Apologized for taking so long and asked for partial manuscript. Had honestly forgotten that I had queried him, so I was pleasantly surprised to see the request. However, I'm not holding out much hope as he seems to work very slowly

Rejection, June 2020. A copy-pasted response that still included the title of someone else's book.

I think this agent is the kind of agent you can attract after you've had book deals. His response time is so slow.
