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.

He was incredibly responsive and helpful. My MS is set in the late 90's which is considered historical by some agents as it is for him. I've had a lot of issues with the MS being set in this time. Therefore, given how the story isn't deeply rooted into that time, I think I'm going to do a small rewrite to make it contemporary. In the event I do, I'm definitely resubmitting to Uwe!

Personalized with extremely detailed (and very useful) feedback, plus the things he really liked. I sent him a thank-you note, and he responded saying he hopes I'll stay in touch. Some agents are just so fantastic with rejections it makes me wonder how amazing they must be with their clients!!!!

Met Uwe at a conference last year 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.
