Nudged 7/8
Replied 7/9 saying he was still far behind. He seems like an awesome guy, though, so I've got no problem waiting!

My Two year journey to an offer:
4/8/16 Friday EQ
4/11/16 Monday FR (he advised checking in 4 weeks later)
5/16/16 Checked in after BEA; he had a backlog and was running behind
6/2/16 Offer Nudge
6/9/16 Accepted Offer from a third agent and contacted nudged agents.
Eric said he was 25 pages from finishing and about to make a counter-offer.
April 2018 that agent and I part amicably after nearly 2 years. I wait to be released from my author-agent agreement.
5/7/18 10:28 EQ (the same MS but revised)
5/7/18 11:24 Email to set up call with offer of representation! He remembered my MS from 2 years ago.
Contemporary YA Fiction 73K words
It's only my first week, but I'm very happy with Eric.
This second query is not recorded in the tracking system since I'm not a premium member.

FYI, his website says that he doesn't take adult science fiction or fantasy.

EQ: 3-2-18 YA, HF

ER: hours later, saying he has a hard time selling historical middle-grade books, only my query says YA and the MC's 17 years-old in the first paragraph. Not sure what to do? It's a little odd. Maybe he meant he has trouble selling YA historicals. Moving on.

Form rejection, but polite and encouraging and fast, so better than a lot....

Thanks for your query. This sounds like an intriguing project, but unfortunately the stack of manuscripts awaiting my attention right now is so big that I must pass. By all means, keep searching out other agents, as another may well want to grab it.

Whatever happens, best of luck!
