@noranne I'll definitely let you know. I haven't heard back yet, though, and I'm not sure how long one waits for a nudge response.

@angshelley - I'll be curious to see if you hear back on the nudge! I'm trying to decide if I should nudge again or just consider this one closed. It's been 17 months...

Basic form rejection.

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.

All the best,

Leon Husock

Ack! Something happened and my paragraph comment was deleted! The short is I'm accepting because Leon is awesome! Still to sign contract but it's a done deal pretty much. :) UPDATE: contract is signed!

Thanks for the info! I'll try querying him again.

Good thing I did! Full request came only 2 hours later.

I re-queried him at his personal address on 10/17 and got a form rejection this morning so it was a super fast turn around (very different from the general submission query I submitted almost a month ago). So I recommend definitely querying at his personal email if you had previously queried the general email. As far as querying his personal email and not yet hearing a response, perhaps a nudge?

Lupine and JennWright83-Yes, please report back. I queried Leon a month ago. Within three days, he replied with a question about my former agent so I know he got my query, but since then, I've heard nothing.

Lupine and JennWright83-- the correct email should be Leon (at) lperkinsagency. That's the one I submitted to and got a response within 10 hours (o.O). He seems to be amazingly on top of it, so if you haven't heard back, there may be a problem. Triple-check that you haven't submitted in a genre he doesn't rep, that you included your first 5 pages, and maybe run your query past some experienced eyes to see if there are any clear issues. If all seems well, may be worth tweeting at him to ask if he always responds and if you should requery? If you do, report back, because that would be useful info for future queriers.
