Domestic thriller, 78000 words
EQ: May 8, 2019
ER: June 13, 2019 (Dear [my name], Thanks so much for letting me take a look at your work, and please forgive me for the brief response. The volume of submissions we receive, however, makes it impossible to provide everyone with detailed feedback. Unfortunately, the project you describe does not suit our list at this time. We wish you the best of luck in finding an agent and publisher for your work, and we thank you, once again, for letting us consider it. Sincerely, Mike)

Obviously a form rejection, but I'm not sure if he's catching up on his queries. After I saw he was closed to queries, I went ahead and queried Michael Bourret (who's actually a better fit) at the agency. I don't know if a pass from one is a pass from all, but I'll update on "Micheal Bourret" thread when/if I get word.
