EQ: 5/16 (I queried him 1/5 months ago and received a rejection)
On 5/17 he emailed me early am stating what he liked in my picture book manuscript (and about my writing) but also pointed out what he'd like to see changed in it. Then he asked for additional manuscripts.
5/18: I emailed him the additional manuscripts + a revision of the manuscript he provided me with feedback for.

Nudged once or twice and he never responded.

EQ sent via another author that's a client with Stephen. He referred me to Marie Lamba, so queried her today.

-Email the next morning with positive comments and requesting to see other PBs.
-He gave positive feedback on the two subsequent PB manuscripts (with the suggestion to make one of them a short chapter book) and said he needs to think about it.

I greatly appreciate his feedback but I'm trying not to get my hopes up as I see from other comments that this by no way guarantees an offer of representation.

Literary Rambles says he's super fast to respond to queries, so I'm going to assume no response means pass.

Responded within 21 minutes with a semi-personalized rejection. Theme of the rejection: word count.
