I don't see many responses to partials/fulls noted here. Anybody know if Rick is generally a non-responder to requested material?

He has the nicest confirmation email (simply saying that he's received my query) that I've ever seen. Must be a top notch fellow!

I thought it was a PR on 5/7 (first 3 chapters) - but it seems I missed the bit in submissions guideline about including that on top of the synopsis + query info!

Nice guy. I realized I accidently addressed my query to MS. Margolis, so I sent an email apologizing for being an idiot. He emailed back saying thanks for the laugh. I hope he likes my pages--he seems like a good guy.

I had a nice note from him on receipt but nothing since. CNR. This is a nice way to do it, though. He treats you like a person even if he doesn't like your stuff after he's read it.

2/22/17 personalized email saying I'm able to send the first 3 chapters. I somehow missed that part of their sub guidelines! Whoops! At least he was kind enough to let me know rather than giving it a rejection.

@Boreas - By synopsis he means query. And if you read a little further, it tells you to include the first three chapters. I got the "personalized" confirmation too, hours later. But it's essentially a form confirmation.
