the fact that he has had over 2 thousand queries and he has only requested 7 people scares me a lot.

He hasn't requested manuscript partials or fulls or any sort of material for well over a year. I don't think he's taking on new clients.

Not a fan of the "no response means no" approach. I think 68 days is long enough on a query. Good Night, John Boy.
