I was shocked to find that he sent me an extremely kind personalized rejection. It was honestly the nicest note I've ever received from an agent. He made it very clear that he actually had read my sample pages and had given everything some serious thought. His words gave me desperately-needed confidence in my query and in my pages. I'm so glad I queried him and that he took the time to answer me. He was one of the first agents I queried and I already feel a lot better about digging back through the trenches because of his kindness.

Said on Twitter he was up late reading manuscripts, so maybe he’s finally making headway on fulls…

I know Eric said recently on Twitter that he isn't caught up on requested manuscripts, but curious if anyone knows/has an estimate of how far back he is. He requested my full over a year ago (April 2021) and when I followed up in Dec 21 to see if no news meant a rejection, his assistant replied, saying that Eric was still reviewing my materials and hoped to have a decision shortly. I haven't had other offers of rep so it really isn't that big a deal at the moment, and I still have fulls out to a couple other agents, just wondering if anyone else is in the same boat/has any idea how backed up he is.
