ER: 3/27/17 Unfortunately, he only sent me a form rejection and admitted to only reading "a large chunk." He stated that he liked it but didn't love it. I wish there would've been a little more info (like how much he got a chance to read before stopping). I know he's got a busy life right now (moving homes, getting ready to leave the country for a couple weeks, etc.). I just hope that maybe this didn't impact his reviewing experience for my novel.

He's a great agent who does a really good job at getting back to writers. Almost too good. :-) I would've been fine if he took his sweet time (months, even) getting to my manuscript. Oh well.

EQ 10/15/16 submitted e-query for 32,000 word MG novel, Ghost Armies
ER 10/17/16 received nice, short rejection first thing Monday morning (" thanks for your query, however, as this storyline isn't fully resonating with me, I'll need to pass on this opportunity")
