EQ 5/10/17 (requery Venom)--same day rejection (not taking any new clients presently.) I'll try Robin Rue next month with Venom.

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.

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