I sent an EQ on 3/13/18 to the email address listed on the Foundry Media page, but considering what everyone else has said, we'll see what happens.

Does anyone know if Sam replies to queries from his primary email? I only now just realized he has a separate email for submissions than what's listed at the bottom of his MSWL page *facepalm.*

Ok, settle in for a story:

6/8/17: EQ
6/22/17: Emailed for full after noticing my pitch on #SFFpit, and remembered he'd already read first three chapters and loved it, wanted to read the rest
10/19/17: Nudge sent
10/20/17: He responded to nudge, saying he'd read it, had really enjoyed it, and was getting "other reads around the office", and would hopefully have more news soon
2/19/18: Second nudge sent
2/22/18: Third nudge sent due to offer of rep
2/23/18: He responded with congrats, and that he'd definitely let me know by the deadline (3/2)
3/1/18: He responded with an ultimate no, but gave positive & constructive feedback on the manuscript!

My takeaway: be patient, he may be interested, but it could take some time to hear back.

EQ 9/12/17
Because we met in person and he asked for a query on SFFPIT, I'm sending it again from another email address:
EQ 12/8/17
After all these reports of fast responses/rejections, I'm trying his other email address...
EQ 1/24/18
ER 2/1/18
Guess it was worth re-emailing him after all! His reply came from the submission, though that's not proof of email address preference - his response specifically said he had a hard time deciding, he might've sat on this for a whole.

"Your query is one of the tough ones to respond to. ... On a line by line basis and based off the synopsis, there isn’t really anything I can point to that would make this better for me."

But, alas, "I’m just not connecting with the story in the way that I need to. You definitely want an agent that has their entire being backing a project and unfortunately, I’m just not feeling it with this book."

As of right now, it has been over 2 weeks, and I haven't heard back. All the queries before and after mine have gotten replies. At what point do I send a follow up?

Thank you for your submission.

Unfortunately, I did not connect with the submitted material enough to consider your project for representation.

I'm trying out a new query letter, so I appreciate an agent with quick response times.

Well, that was fast at least.

Okay, marking this CNR as of 1/9/18. Too bad.

It's just strange to get a CNR from someone who a) solicited my query in a pitch contest and b) I have met in person and got along with and had multiple emails with about my last project.

I submitted on 9/7/17 in response to a PitMad like. No response, so I nudged 11/20/17. Submitted again from a different email address on 12/9/17.
