He said on twitter that if you are going to re-query after a rewrite to always tell him that you have changed the book and how because he'll always feel like it's familiar.

I'm taking the plunge and closing this bad boy out. This was my first full request ever! I might never have finished editing or continued writing without it. Thanks Leon and good luck to everyone else!

Thank you for thinking of me for your work; unfortunately, it's just not quite right for me. As I'm sure you know, whether or not to take on a client is a very personal decision, and has as much to do with an agent's personal preferences as it does an author's writing abilities.

I wish you lots of success in your writing career.

@scritrice Not unless things have changed recently. He replies so promptly that you don't really need one. But he does confirm receipt of fulls.

Does anyone know if his email gives an auto reply confirmation when you send your query? I didn't get anything.

He's had my full since June 2016. Obviously I've written it off at this point, but when I did nudge him in March 2017 he said it was still under consideration.

@Megdanger, I had a manuscript with him out from March of 2017. I nudged with an offer on a different MS a few weeks ago, and he promised to read the first MS and get back to me. Never heard back.

Yeah, he has had my full since November. Not a peep. I've heard from two lucky ducks who did get an offer from him that it came after post-offer nudges so take that data point for what it's worth.

@Megdanger, I'm very curious about that as well. At this point my guess is he's just requesting fulls and not reading them unless you have an offer from someone else.

Ok but does he actually read any of the fulls people send him? Can anyone here confirm even a rejection on a full recently? It seems like he's just hoarding them.
