The rejection was kind, personable, and encouraging. I'm sad but I understand. Good luck to all who query this agent.

Twitter account lists him as open and his feed still has an 'I am open to submissions again today' tweet on 21st October, so was def open on that day for those who submitted queries then ... most recent comments are a bit confusing!

Queried October 21, 2022.
Got this message today:

"Thanks for sending me your work.

Sadly, I’m closed for submissions at present, and your work will be deleted.

If you’d like to resubmit to me in future please keep an eye on our website or my twitter page to see when I’m open again."

So...apparently he is closed to submissions?

Dark Fantasy 35,000 words

I've previously queried Alex on a manuscript he rejected, but he requested I send my next book his way.

Thank you for sending me your work.
I thought this was really well done, but I’m afrid I just didn’t quite connect fully enough to think I’d be the right agent for this.
I’m sorry not to have better news, but do of course wish you all the best in your work and in your search for an agent and publisher.
