This one bummed me out because he was in my top ten. I felt my book was exactly what he was looking for, but I guess these agents go on a gut feeling since they don't have time to read everything. Form rejection.

Does anyone know which publishers Mr. Taylor works with? And which authors he represents? Of course in this, the age of the internet, not all agents need to be in New York but google shows his location as, Sewickley Heights Manor Homes Association , When I looked at the location it in a housing development so must be a home business? I just wanted to see what publishing connections, Triada US Literary Agency has.

Passed, 1/12/20--Personalized, helpful rejection. I'm sad. He seems like a great agent.

12/21/19: Embarrassed to say that I'd entered the wrong email address for him! Just queried his correct address...fingers crossed.

Gah! I'm not sure what to do about this. (Or, what I can do!) Obviously, he's super fast. The website says if you don't hear from them in two weeks, they didn't get your query and you can nudge. I queried him on 10/30/19. Nudged two weeks later. Still nothing. His stats show 1 day for positive response, 2 days for passing. I'm at 35 days. I hate to nudge again! Anyone else waiting for a reply?

Just sent a second nudge! (The website says it's okay to do so!)
