EQ 12/7/17 (PitMad request)
2/8/18 Nudged on Twitter & Email: (Never got a confirmation email or a status update. Sent to his direct email following his PitMad request)
2/9/18: Re-sent EQ (Brooks said he never received it, then asked that I resend. Glad I asked.)
3/14/18: Emailed nudge (worried because last time he didn't receive my Query)
CNR 4/20/18 - Never heard back from nudge. I've given up on this guy. So frustrating. He liked my PitMad pitch, never got my original Query, requested another, never responded to that or my nudge. I can't be sure he ever received that 2nd Query. Sad to see my PitMad request go to waste like that. He should get himself an auto-response.

Was going to query but checked his Twitter feed which said this (posted 10 hours ago): "I'm now about to take my first real vacation (no checking email!) since I got into publishing." The comments indicate he's on his honeymoon. Would suggest holding queries for a few weeks until he's home and caught up.

EQ: 4/12/18 - hopefully, he's home and caught up by now!

He sent a short, personalized rejection letter...referring to a couple of things I mentioned in my query and saying he didn't connect with the material. Seems like a great agent.

Hi, Brooks's Tumblr says he's closed as of 8 February. Does anyone know if that is 2018?

@brandonmc87 Thanks for the comment. I never heard back on a DVpit request from October and now I'm wondering if he never got it!
