Personal Note: I believe I gave ample time to send a rejection letter *blush lol* Honestly I hope it isn't a rejection letter because he's literally one of the top five *on my list* of agents I'd like to work with. If anything changes, I'll edit this. If not, good luck to you all.

Something inspirational to hear: Trust yourself. You've survived a lot and you will survive whatever is coming. -Unknown Author

He was so thorough with the MS and incredibly supportive. He's a gem. I highly recommend shooting your shot with him.

Like that Schelling solicits the entire manuscript as an attachment w/query. Smart. Cuts out the send me a partial stage.

Question: Query guidelines on the agency website says: "Email your query letter with manuscript", so I am assuming this is the full manuscript right?
