Form rejection BUT he did include my name, which I appreciate, as well as the swift response. I still can't get behind agents who don't bother to ever respond.

The rejection came with a lot of feedback and suggestions, though with a (valid) note that my book likely has no place in the market, which stings. The best part about the email was that Uwe gave me a really, really kind compliment about my writing, and invited me to query him in the future (which I definitely will!).

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.

FR: 2/11/20
Personalized letter from Elle Thompson who gave feedback on areas to revise.

Sent in my query and 38 page manuscript via traditional mail on Jan 28, 2020
Response came back on Feb 7, 2020.

While disappointed that it was turned down for representation, the small handwritten note he put in the empty margin of my own letter was polite, encouraging, and felt more personal than the form letters I've received from other agents.

I would recommend him to other writers and approach him again with another piece of work if I had to.

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.
2/3/20 Personalized rejection from assistant, Elle Thompson. Not gonna lie, this one stung.

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.

Best of luck,"
