EQ - 11/3/2016 - Requested full mss 1 hour 53 minutes after I sent the EQ and first 5 pages. From his phone. Hybrid crime/military thriller FORCE NO ONE - 106k hybrid crime/military thriller
1/26/2017 - nudge
ER - 1/27/2017 - "Thank you for checking in. I’ve read and thought over your material quite a bit. Your writing reads fast and has a nice style to it. That said, I just wasn’t as pulled in by the characters or the story as much as I’d hoped to be. Given how difficult it is to break into the current, difficult market, that makes FORCE NO ONE something that I feel I should pass on. Thank you for having shared your work with me, however, and best of luck in connecting with just the right agent."

EQ 4/20/16 (Requery Venom)
ER 7/20/16 (Passed from nudge--interesting concept, not confident to take it on.) Will try him next month with Chain Reaction.

11/23/16: EQ 9/21/16 (Requery Chain Reaction)
ER 11/23/16 (Passed from nudge--doesn't sound right for him, different rejection than from Venom this summer. Will try him with Diplomatic Immunity in January 2017.
