I queried Mr. Heymont on 8/31/20 and got a response on 9/29/20 that he forwarded my inquiry to Renae Moore, because this may be a "better match." Appreciate the pass-along!

Got a rejection from Matthew Belford, despite querying Lane Heymont. Maybe it was forwarded (though kind of frustrating, as I'd queried Matthew at his previous agency and had already been rejected there).

FR: 9/24/20 - Request was from Matthew Belford, who I was planning to query if Mr. Heymont rejected me. I'm assuming he forwarded it to him.

ER 9/11/2020 -- Huh, almost a year since I counted him out. I've been with another agent almost that long, and my novel is supposed to be published in 2021. I'm not sure what that says about this agent or the industry in general, if anything.

EQ'd back on 7/28. No response. Wondering if it's okay to nudge, as he seems to close out most queries, either with rejections or requests.
