EQ 8/1/16 (Requery Venom)
CNR 3/28/17 (After nudge on 11/2/16, he replied back they're sorting through submissions and would get back to me soon. I never did and sent him two follow-ups earlier this year.) Will try him with Chain Reaction this late summer and will do Peter Steinberg with Venom, after I hear back or close out my submission to Jessica Regel later this spring.)

"Upon reviewing the remainder of your manuscript, we have decided to pass on your submission. With this in mind, we greatly appreciate that you chose to submit your work to Foundry, and wish you luck in your road towards publication,
Thanks again,
PM Submissnions"

Interesting that as picky as some agents get about having their names spelled right, that this agency (probably an intern) misspelled my name in different ways on both the initial request for more and the rejection. That said, is it nicer to get a rejection with your name spelled right? LOL
