I'd like to thank anyone, especially his former clients who come out with info regarding his behavior. He is a big deal in publishing so what you do is brave and useful for us querying writers.

@sortilegus Seems like he was out in April, out again in July... then there is covid. Is it possible someone in his family was sick? Who knows, not excusing the slow response, just wondering.

Beware. This guy seems to have a nasty habit of requesting full manuscripts and then never following up. He requested my manuscript in early January 2020. About six months later, I politely checked in. It is now mid September and I still have not received any response--either to my initial submission of the manuscript or to my follow up message. Looking at the "timeline" section of this site, it seems I'm not the only one this has happened to.
