Are you still closed to queries, Jeff?! Come back to us!

If anyone knows, please confirm? Not sure how often this database is updated...

Rejected my manuscript in the kindest possible terms. He is more a "literary novel agent" If any rejection can be "good," this one was.

Submitted on personal recommendation. Got email 2 days later. Nice rejection. But I'm suspicious that he didn't read it at all.

@LightofBeauty - Thanks for the info. On his reply, Jeff said that if I didn't hear from him within a week it's a 'no'. I thought it was great that he gave me such a tight timeline. The agency is a very prominent one so I figured I'd never hear from them and have to close it out due to no response . . . like so many of them (sigh).

@mlowriter - I queried another agent from this agency who did the same, responded that she's actually going to read it. It seems like this agency in general is a "we'll respond if interested otherwise it's a no" agency, though Jeff DID send me a form rejection, which at least told me that he was looking at it with some interest. Seems like this agency doesn't go out of the way to send forms or responses to everyone, so to get a response at all, good or bad, isn't so bad!
