Nudged due to offer of rep: 9.13.17
Offer of rep: 9.15.17 I ended up signing with a different agent, but talking to Eric was amazing - he was funny, kind, and incredibly smart. Anyone would be lucky to work with him!

I'm surprised people still query this guy considering when you scroll down and read many comments below, there are so many red flags. He's an example of how no agent is better than having a bad agent.

Looking at his query reply timeline, gotta give him credit. He is very quick on the draw with the reply. Knows what he wants. But they all look red, unfortunately!
