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.

Nudged: 10/2/2015
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.
