Always appreciate James’ turnaround times. Bummed that third time wasn’t the charm, but can’t stop here. Best of luck, everyone!

Very sweet rejection saying "Firstly, I hope you're doing well, staying safe and healthy." So kind!

Very nice rejection, can't tell if it was a form but either way I definitely recommend querying him.
