EQ - 1/3
FR - 1/3 (Woohoo! Sent same day.)
ER - 1/22, somewhat form-y with the same line about not having drop-everything passion that peppermint22 got, but he did say there was a lot to admire, so that's something! Brent was very pleasant to deal with and enthusiastic, and I appreciate his total commitment to stanning for his authors. Would definitely query again.

Same form letter I got @JackSkellington--disappointing, but at least the agony of waiting was reduced!
