Pitched to him in April 2019. Heard 2 minutes before my pitch that he doesn't like time travel. This rattled my already delicate nerves as my book is time travel based. I covered with a joking opener about how I heard he didn't like time travel. We laughed together as he admitted to that rumor, then prodded me for details anyways. We chatted in a much less pressuring way, then he gave me some good advice and some leads. Friendly and inviting, I don't regret attempting to pitch to him!

He typically replies within 3 weeks, no more than 8. Open to be pleasantly surprised if he's just been ruminating on mine...

Form letter rejection with an interesting sentence in the middle:
"I wasn't hanging on wanting to see what happened, it didn't have me sitting on the edge of my seat, and it didn't interest me or excite me."
