CNR / withdrawn from consideration on 8/31/17: agency guidelines show he's not interested in romance or erotica, which is a fair part of what I do besides SFF.

On 4/15/16, I've requeried Paul with Venom and nudged him today--he passed, wasn't enthusiastic about it. I'll try him this summer with Chain Reaction.
