ER: November 29th, 2018. Oh, well! Wonderfully personalized rejection, outlining what he liked and what he struggled with. Seems like a stellar agent :)

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.

Query nudge after 50 days.
(Peter's blog says to nudge if no response received.)
No answer to nudge.

Nudge with offer: 9/26
Full request: 9/27
Kind step aside with some helpful feedback (and a note that he'd have requested an R&R if I didn't have a pending offer): 10/1

My email exchanges with Pete were so uplifting, I can't help but feel that his clients are incredibly lucky to work with him. He was kind but honest about his thoughts on my MS, as well as timely in getting back to me well before my stated deadline.

A kind form rejection, after 90 days. At least he responded! There was an invitation to submit again, but I believe that's part of his form.

Does anyone know how far he’s gotten with his queries? I submitted mine in early July of this year and I haven’t gotten a response yet. I’m debating on resending my query, but I’m going to wait for the 12 week mark to pass before I resend it.

I'm going to call this one a rejection, as I just saw his #tenqueries and am 100% certain he was describing my ms. Said it was hard, as it was good writing, but a //pass.

ER 3/10

6/23 EQ again. Read on the Q&A section of his website that he is open to one requery if significant changes have been made. I made substantial story changes based on a R&R from another agent.
