I had some bad luck with Ed because when I originally queried him and when I nudged in December I happened to hit his out of office emails. I finally nudged him again yesterday and he got back right away and was happy for me to send revised versions pf the chapters I sent months ago. Unfortunately it was a no, he really liked what I'd written but found it was too wordy for his tastes. Really nice guy though and passed on some useful thoughts and feedback.
