On 3/24, I've sent him an equery for Venom. Two weeks ago, I nudged him. Now it's a no response. 5/25--requerying him. 8/25--closed/no response.

9/6, I queried him for Chain Reaction. Two weeks ago, I nudged him. No response. Will requery him again in 2012.

2/29/16: On 1/29/16, I requeried Jim Hornfischer with Venom and heard back from him today on my nudge--a pass, not a category they're actively pursuing. I'll try him in April with Chain Reaction. (Better responses than I got in 2011 and 2012, when I got a CNR for him both times.)

1/9/17: 11.5.16 EQ Diplomatic Immunity
1/9/17 ER (Passed from nudge, going to let it go.) Will try him with something else later this year.

4/29/16--On 3/30/16, I've requeried Jim with Chain Reaction. Today I've nudged him and got a pass with no reason. Different that February's response.

EQ 1/3/2018
FR 1/4/2018
Responded day after query.
Request for full manuscript (Military/Memoir).

Update: Submission Rejection - 2/12/2018
Very personalized rejection letter, even complimentary in parts. Doesn't think he could really get anywhere with the publishers he deals with. I'd still encourage others to submit. Here's very upfront and on-the-level, IMO.
On to the next.

his website indicates he's interested in non-fiction only, so don't be fooled by the genre tab's "commercial fiction"

Received a quick and nice response to my email NF query: Dear Lee, I'd very much like to have a look. Please send it along via email at your convenience, along with your bio and any press coverage that you might have received. Thanks for the opportunity. Jim
