I was hoping that Mr. Ron Eckel would recall my last Query Letter I sent to him. My book " The Haunting of Marcasite was published Sept.16, 2016. I have more projects that I am working on. Maybe you might be able to have a look at my new projects. I look forward to hearing from you Mr. Ron Eckel. Thanks for your incredible positive response you gave me. Plus for the help you provided to me. My name is : James A. Best-Author-Blogger. Please e-mail me at : jamesbest1864@outlook.com.

Met with Ron's peer Rachel Letofsky at at conference; she suggested I submit my full manuscript directly to Ron.

emailed full 2016-06-01
form rejection 2016-08-31 from Elizabeth Griffin (never heard from Ron)

And to boot, the form rejection was for someone sending a query, not a submission they requested. That's how the industry rolls -- agents are unwilling or unable to provide feedback, even on something they requested, yet they all want writers to learn from feedback.
