Mr. Knapp was very sweet with his rejection, and gave feedback on why it didn't work for him.

LillySantiago: just submit the first 10 pages no matter if it cuts the chapter or not

Okay, so I sent the first five pages instead of the first ten but only because if I did, it would cut between chapters and I didn't want to do that. I just got an email today saying to resubmit with the first ten pages has that happened to anyone else before?

@horrochix89 I didn't know he was behind but, thank you! I think I'll wait a while longer, especially since it's summer time.

He's behind on queries. It took 70 days from #DVpit to receive a response. That and he went on vacation, conferences, and other things. Give it time

His average response time for a request is 22 days and my query hit 21 today. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that by some miracle I receive a request from him tomorrow.

horrorchix89, I was also disappointed to receive a form response to my DVpit sub. I was really looking forward to receiving a personalized response and possibly helpful feedback.

Polite form. I didn't get an auto response on my initial query, so he must be diligently checking spam!

I submitted a query as part of his feedback review offer at the end of March/early April. Hadn't heard anything in the weeks since, so I checked his website and found the following comment (dated May 27th). Guess I'll keep this one open...
[UPDATE: ER June 13, not a right fit but provided feedback]

hi pete! i submitted to your feedback offer back in the end of march but i haven't heard anything yet. are you still getting through them? thank you :)

Yes, shamefully I am WAY behind on the feedback giveaway critiques. I should’ve known better than to think I’d have free time during the months of April and May in publishing. I plan to catch up soon!
