Same day response! Still a form rejection, but a pleasant one that didn't keep me waiting.

Very fast response, probably due to genre. Pleasant rejection showing my material had been read.

I queried him because of an interview in which he said that unrequited love was his sweet spot and he wanted smart male protagonists. I got form rejection. Oh well. Keep trying. He seems like an amazing agent. Better luck to someone else.
