To all expecting a response by January 14: a new auto email to all querying authors says he will be out of the office until February 1. If you don't receive a reply by February 8, he is not interested, but wishes all good luck. Maybe don't CNR yet, guys.

His out-of-office email said that no response by January 14th meant rejection.

Narrative NF/Bio/Sports Email Query on 12/21/21: On paper, the agent-project fit seemed natural given Uwe's immigrant background and passion for wide-ranging and deeply reported NF.
CNR/Effective Rejection on 1/15/22: Unfortunately, I didn't receive any response by 1/14, so, barring anything unexpected, it's effectively a rejection as his earlier out-of-office auto-response explained.

Email query: 28/07
Full request: 29/07
sent at night and woke up with a response: super fast!
R&R 14/12: A very long and thorough email about changes that I'm very excited about. He really seems to get it, my book, my love triangle--- all of it. I'm so thankful he's still giving feedback even with the current climate of publishing being what it is. Saw right though all my worldbuilding plot holes that I thought for SURE I'd hidden well enough, ahahhaa: he's good. Scared to mess this up, crossing my fingers I can do it.

Y'all I've been querying for upwards of 150 days and I've only gotten forms until this. I'm pretty sure (?) my book isn't complete garbage lmao, especially after this thorough R&R email. If you're in the same position I was in yesterday, keep pushing through, and I hope you get some kind of feedback soon. It's such a hellscape.

Question re this agent: it says on the website JUST include query in the email?

That means no pages and no synopsis, right? I don't know why I am overthinking this!

Dear engstromdd. The policy has not changed. For the past 5 weeks, there has been an OOO message in place that states that I will only respond if I am interested in a project. If you did not receive the response, please check in either your spam and your promotions folder. Sometimes my auto responses end up in there. Best wishes, Uwe
