Pitmad Request - 6/4
FQ - 6/6
Full Request - 6/8 (sent same day)
Full Response - 7/23 Personalized response saying there is a lot to love and is passing the manuscript over to his colleague Moe Ferrara who wants to take a look at it now. Thinks its a better fit for her. So fingers crossed as it moves over to Moe.

Quick response. Affirming and engaging rejection letter. Detailed and helpful MSWL page. Will continue to query with future projects--across multiple platforms seems like a hardworking, friendly individual who genuinely cares about his clients.

Replied the following day with a very courteous rejection. He seems very nice and I'm gutted not to be working with him.
