Received a personal rejection with several helpful comments. I've met Dr. Stender at writer's conferences. He is invariably thoughtful and helpful. (Length of response is atypical for him and had to do with my submitting some revisions.)

Uwe sent me a kind email telling me that he enjoyed my book but was unsure how to position it in the marketplace, so he would have to step aside. He seems like a great guy to work with!

After submitting, it only took 3 minutes before the form rejection came in. I love that it's a fast reply, but it makes you wonder if every query is read.

From his Twitter published on 6/14:

My #MSWL these days: Fiction: Adult Suspense, YA contemporary (any subgenre), YA and MG Graphic Novels.
Nonfiction: Pop Culture, or Narrative Nonfiction that reads like a novel, but is 100% researched. I remain open to other stuff, but the above is what I really want.

I sent my query email at 1:34 pm and received a form rejection at 1:36. I appreciate the quick reply; it's much better than never hearing back at all. But I thought I'd warn people that this likely means he isn't reading every query. I'm assuming he isn't considering my genre at all right now (contemporary fantasy).

His genres on Querytracker include picture books. Where does that info come from? The Triada website does not mention that he's open to PBs.
