He told me on 2/16, "I'm sorry, but I'm not able to take on new clients right now."

I sent a partial through a referral on June 3, just followed up as I'd received no reply. Fingers crossed, though I'm guessing it's a no.
Update: he allowed me to re-send, with updated chapters.

he got right back to me after the nudge. says he never got the original query! Sigh.

UPDATE 11/24/2015 - he took the time to read my proposal and to write a big long email explaining why the subject matter wasn't right for him, too techie... the material kind of overwhelmed him I guess, and he wasn't willing to go for it. So he passed. Probably just as well.

Note from assistant saying they'd read a chunk and wanted to read more, but be patient: 6/25
6/25 to 8/17: Me practicing patience...kind of.
8/18: Lovely, heartbreaking rejection.

So, next time, and if not, the next time after that...

Keep fighting the good fight, folks. Writing the good write.

Nice personal reject for my email query. Somehow made the year wait worth it. Ah, well...next time.

I include the date I submitted the query and the response time date.

I sent only my query, which amounted to one page, and got the request for the full from that.

When you follow-up, be sure to paste in your original query. Who knows--it could've gotten lost somewhere in the slush pile! Good luck.
