ER 3/28/2022 "I’m afraid it’s a pass. The writing just wasn’t winning me over the way I’d hoped it might, but thanks for the look."

If every agent replied as much as Harvey Klinger, the whole agent-finding process would be much saner

From his assistant, doesn't seem like quite the right fit for Harvey.
Going to try another at this agency that might work better for me.

In addition to the full short story collection, he requested to read the opening chapters of my novel. I am keeping my fingers crossed! His request came as such a lovely surprise. Will post updates.
Rejected the full on 5/10/21.

Queried Klinger in June, 2020. In July, got an email back to send first 50. In late July, got "sorry, but the writing didn't hold up like I would have hoped."

Exactly the same as others in this thread regarding his "didn't hold up" comment back to me.

This guy's "sorry, not for me" response cracks me up for some reason. I guess you have to appreciate the timely reply.

Rejected with impersonal four word email: 29 June 2020
I feel like one day wasn't a lot of time to give anyone their full attention, and to have a four word rejection was upsetting, but glad I wasn't waiting for months.
