Quick question to everyone who sent fulls--did you all receive confirmation of receipt within a week or so of sending?

@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
