I didn’t initially hear back on my query but after a nudge he requested pages. After another nudge (5-6 months later) he passed, but gave helpful and insightful feedback and was all-around pleasant to interact with.

Received e-mail receipt of query.
Passed the 3-weeks mark that he typically replies within, so holding out for the 8-weeks mark.
Nudged Nov 19 at 4-weeks mark (found out he does not read in order of receipt, which was good to learn because I assumed all agents DID read chronologically).

ER: 11/15/19 - Very kind rejection. Felt the voice leaned more towards adult, but would be interested in seeing anything adult I might write in the future.

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...
