Full Request 8/1/17
Rejection 9/20/17

Thank you for sharing Break Point with me. I admire very much the intelligence that drives the narrative, but I'm sorry to say I'll be stepping aside. Ultimately I just didn't have a clear vision for how to place the book in the market successfully. Not a good starting point, no matter how much I might admire some of its literary qualities.

Best wishes connecting with an agent who sees a way.

I queried him 3 years ago with this novel and after reading the full he said it was a few drafts away.... He was right. I have since edited and rewrote a lot of the novel with my MFA professor and have re-queried in the hopes he will give the novel a second chance. Here's to hoping!

I'm the same as Scifictionwriter. On 2/22/16, I've queried Rob with Venom's new query. Belatedly, I've nudged him two weeks ago and now closing him out as CNR.
