On Twitter, he said he's leaving the industry to devote himself to blacksmithing!

I'm confused: his official page on L. Perkins Agency says he is building his list, but his twitter says he is closer... wtf?

He requested my full in Jul 2017. Said it was still under consideration in Jan 2018. When he closed to "read" MS requests, I nudged. He never replied. I get he's backlogged, but c'mon. CNR on a full is just cruel.

nudged on full after 181 days.

So, Leon's been closed to queries for a month now to "make a dent" in his MS pile.

... anyone heard back?

ETA: Two months. Anyone? Anyone at all?

ETA2: Three months. Guys, I think there's a *chance* he's not actually reading our manuscripts.

@toomanypodcasts I haven't heard anything either. T minus 89 days. :(

For everyone else who has a full out with him, he did say on Twitter that he's closing to queries for the foreseeable future in order to make a dent in his requested MS pile. So if you're feeling discouraged by the wait, it may actually come to an end in the next few months. Yay!

[Notice went up on 9/7 that he is closed to queries. I suspect this means I'll need to re-send when he opens to queries again.

Queried 9/6 and was told he's not, in fact, open to queries. Not sure if this conversation he had on twitter was temporary or specifically for that person or what. I was told I'm welcome to requery when he opens.
