Super speedy reply after only a few hours, asking for a full with a synopsis at the beginning of the manuscript, plus one sentence describing the premise of the book. Fingers crossed!
PS: that one sentence is for him to look back on when he's going through his manuscript log and (I presume) decide which MS to read next. So I suppose it's best to make this as awesome as possible.

YA Fantasy - later on, I realized I had left two letters out of his last name. I'm wondering if he even read the query or rejected it outright because of my stupidity.

My data doesn't show up in the timeline because I listed it under "referral/contest" instead of a query, so including info here:

Query Kombat partial request: 6/9/16, sent 6/17
Upgraded to a full: 6/20/16, sent same day
He acknowledged receipt of the full and asked if I wanted to know when he started reading, which I declined.

Nudged on 3/1/17, he responded same day and said it was still under consideration and apologized for the delay.
