#SFFpit like July 28th, 2021
Email Query with full July 29th, 2021
Confirmed Receipt July 30th, 2021 and said he plans to finish reading by Labor Day (September 6th)
Nudge September 21st, 2021
Nudge October 25th, 2021 replied saying he'd been busy with clients and I was in his queue. @A_Converse you're ahead of me by about 6 months, but he may just be veeeeery behind.

Does anybody know if Mr. Lucas responds to all fulls? He's had mine for 10 months and I nudged about five months ago asking if he was still interested - he said he was. A couple days ago I nudged because I'd revised based on an R&R and got no response. Just wondering if I should close it out because his last response was incredibly prompt - within a few minutes.

I sent a message to the "info" mailbox at Janklow & Nesbit, asking if Mr. Lucas was open to queries, and the responder confirmed that he is open at this time.

Is this agent actually closed to queries? I don't see it on the company website, Twitter, or MSWL. Just here.

"Thank you for the opportunity to read your submission. Unfortunately, after reviewing your submission, I do not believe it would be a good fit for my list. The need to allocate my time effectively forces me to decline participation in many worthy projects, and, regretfully, that must be the decision in this case as well.
"I am very sorry not to be able to help you with this project but please accept my best wishes for you in your search for representation."
Best regards,
Eloy Bleifuss on behalf of Paul Lucas
