@KeeptheFaith: Yes, he will, but it'll be a hard sell. I do know that it's best to ask first. Best of luck. :)

He wrote this a while ago, but I found this blog post super helpful. I was wondering why he sometimes randomly responds to submissions and not others. I guess sometimes he just gets a burst of energy and feels like responding? He seems kind of unorthodox, but nice.

Very kind, personalized rejection letter stating that he had to pass due to the wide array of novels in this particular genre. Anyone who receives his representation is lucky.
