On 3/11/16, I've sent him my requery for Venom via snail mail. Today I've heard back from him via snail mail with a pass: not the right agency for it. So I'll try him with Chain Reaction this late spring.

7/10/16: SQ 5/11/16 (Requery Chain Reaction)
7/8/16 ER (Not right fit). Will try Judith Weber with Venom next month.

No, the post card is something they send out confirming that they have received your materials. Hope that helps. Have a good day!

Thanks, Emily. Did you send the post card with the partial?

a_climacus, to answer your question below, yes, my request for pages stated that they want exclusivity for 4 weeks. I think the post card confirming receipt of the pages said they would respond within 6 weeks. I was at the beginning of my search when I got their request so I am okay with it.

Did any of you who got partial requests also get the request for an exclusive? And if you already had pages out did you just send the partial anyway and simply inform him of the situation?
