Queried 10th of April 2021. MG science fantasy 43k.
Rejected on the 16th of April. A polite yet unhelpful reply. It seemed personalised, and is appreciated either way.

Check Publisher's Marketplace for his March 8, 2021 sale.

Does anyone know of any recent sales of his for SFF to traditional publishers? I only see digital sales for SFF listed on Publisher's Marketplace. Last fantasy sale listed that I can see not to a digital press was in 2015.

He sent a notification today (1/28/2021) saying he's passed it on to another agent. I've marked this as a helpful rejection. Not sure if that was the right call, so I thought I'd note that here. :)
