"Thanks so much for your query. Unfortunately, this project does not sound quite right for me.
Best of luck,"
His web site said he being an immigrant would like stories of immigrant experiences.

5/21/19 FR (3 hours later!)

12/3/19 Notified Uwe about significant changes I made due to a R&R. Out of office until 12/4 reply. If interested will get back by 12/06

1/6/2020 Was going to CNR this but since he says he always replies to full requests, I decided to nudge on the full and ask if he wanted to see the revisions. Figured he wouldn't respond since it's a solid month after he said he'd get back if interested.

1/7/20 NEVER BE AFRAID TO KINDLY NUDGE! Uwe emailed an apology. He thought he replied but I slipped through the cracks. He asked to see the revision. Bracing for a no, but I'm happy I was brave enough to nudge and I don't have to CNR this.
1/7/19 Revision sent. Contemporary YA--72,200 words. I'm logging this as a request for additional pages instead of a revise and submit, but I'm not sure if that's the best way to track this.

Met Uwe at a conference last year (2018) and cold pitched him at a mixer, even though the book wasn't finished. He invited me to query whenever it was ready. He was nice and funny, and happy to share his knowledge with nervous writers. Would definitely recommend sitting in on his seminars if he's at a conference near you.

Received an auto reply saying out of office until Dec 4th will respond by Dec 6 if interested.

Received a FR from Elle Thompson on 12/15/19. Sent manuscript a few hours later. I would confirm that if you don't receive a response to not give up hope. I had originally thought this was a pass, but we shall see.

Nudged 12-13-19 since I never received a response and worried my query got lost based on his fast responses.

Be sure to resubmit if you don't get a response. I queried in October and November, with no answers, and got a reply in December, as it seems my queries had been gobbled by the Spam monster.

As advertised, from query to rejection, a turnaround in 6 minutes. If I were going to complain, I would say that I included 10 pages with the query and he clearly didn't have enough time to even read them. However, if he can tell from the query alone that this isn't the project for him, then I guess it's better not to waste his time or mine.
