Sent him an unrequested major revision after his 10/13/17 rejection per his recent #MSWL request for MG with a ghostly bent. In my query, I explained that this was a revised resubmission and hoped he would reconsider based on the improvements and his current needs.

@royalmcflea I queried 12/3 and the auto-response was as follows:
"Thank you for your submission. Due to the high volume of queries we receive, we are unable to respond to adult submissions unless we are interested in your work.
Blair Wilson is no longer accepting queries. Any queries submitted to her will be deleted unread, but please feel free to resubmit to another agent.
Peter Knapp responds to all children's and YA submissions sent to him within approximately 12 weeks, so please do not follow-up before that time unless the status of your submission has changed such that you need a more immediate reply."

Wondering (as others have) if Pete still has a policy of getting back to everyone, as I see the Park Literary submissions pages notes that no response = no. I submitted almost 10 weeks ago. Wouldn't think much of it until 12-16 weeks or so, but I see a gap in the QT list of MSS submitted around the same time as mine. (It was right before DVPIT, so maybe this is a factor?). Query was a "soft request" after a conference a long time ago, so curious whether to chalk all this up to his being super busy.

EZippermeyer - I don't think it hurts to nudge, in case he did not receive your initial query, for some reason. I submitted two manuscripts to him. I received a rejection in 11 days for one and the other was a CNR, but I don't remember if I sent a nudge for that one or not.

Does Peter get back to everyone eventually? That was my impression. Not sure if I should CNR, or nudge, or just leave it for now. It's been 61 days.

8/6: Rejection with some feedback. I'm pretty bummed - I was excited about this agent. Very kind person, though.
9/25: After rejecting my full manuscript over a month ago, he sent me a form rejection of my original query! Ouch! Retroactive rejection!
The day after I wrote the 9/25 update (which I didn't write until 10/17), Peter sent me a nice email apologizing for the mistake. That tells me he reads these comments. Super good guy - anyone would be lucky to work with him.
