10/3 super personalized kind rejection w/ explanation of what he liked and didn’t like.

An excellent agent to query and I’m sure a great rep for his clients.

Queried on the 14th October (unsure if he’d take on fantasy)
Withdrew query 18th October, citing I didn’t think he’d take fantasy
Very kind response 19th October: No worries! I appreciate you thinking of me nonetheless. Feel free to try my colleague Naomi Davis.
