12/15: Well, after a few emails back and forth, it didn't work out with him. First of all, he didn't know what a R and R was. Second of all, once I told him, he told me he had to be blunt--he said my prose was awkward that he had ever seen. Second of all, he rejected my proposal and told me, he doesn't want me to resubmit, unless I can analyze what went wrong with my prose. I told him, I was willing to fix it and that I'm reworking it now as I speak. He thought I was arguing with him, when I tried to get some clarity out of it. He said to submit it to someone else, and told me he doesn't wish to work with writers who doesn't understand to see what he writes. I told him I did. So that was that. It's dead in the water. No R&R, officially scratched off on my query list for good. It's marked as helpful, since he gave me some tips on my prose. Oh well. I wished he wasn't mean. I did apology. He didn't respond.

If anyone has better luck than me, let me know.

Last year, I posted this over at the Joyce Hart profile page. I'm reposting it here. I've had a bad experience with him.

12/14: I've heard back from Andy Sheer. Let me know what you guys think. He apologized for getting back to me on the delay. He said that my proposal and sample chapters aren't sharp as they like--he said some were confusing, awkward or hard to understand. He did say the concept was good and wants me to go back to sharpen my prose for me to better able what I envisioned. AS for the proposal, (which I looked over at the website), he mentioned about target reader, comparable books and potential role to help promote my book. To me, this sounds like a R&R. Am I right? If anyone has done a winning Hartline proposal, let me know.
