"I greatly appreciate the opportunity to consider your query—thanks for sending it.

Unfortunately, the query didn't appeal quite enough to my own tastes to inspire me to offer representation or further consideration of your project. I wish I had the time to respond to everyone with constructive criticism, but it would be overwhelming, hence this form response.

This business is highly subjective; many people whose work I haven't connected with have gone on to critical and commercial success. So, keep after it.

I am grateful that you have afforded me this opportunity to find out about you and your project, and wish you the best of success with your current and future creative work.

All best wishes"

So if you're in that batch when he was doing the transition from email to QueryManager, send again via QM. I got a rejection the next day :( But honestly, better a form reply than no reply!
03/06/2023 02:00 PM
He hasn't requested any material, partial or full, for almost 2 years, though there might be outliers from in-person or non-tracked

Also khornstein-- awful agent is a holdover from the JABberwock agency. The entire agency website is awfulagent(dot)com.

I saw a few submissions in January that looked to be passed over at the time he was switching to QueryManager. So I re-submitted today via QM. I changed the title of my book so I hope he's not totally confused! :) I also re-thought my pitch a bit...thought I might as well try it out on him. I am not sure why he bills himself as "awful agent??"

@SaraphinaMarie I am in the same boat. And I've also thought of sending my query again through QM because I'm at 109 days and no response yet.

Query & rejection on the same day. He's fast for an ultramarathon runner. :)

So I'm in the last batch of emailed queries before he went to QM. Looking at his stats, it seems like most of these get ghosted, but he replies to the QM forms pretty quickly. I'd rather know than not know so I can close tabs and move on...I wonder if it would be worth resending my query through the QM form?
He did say he would attend to the backlog of emails...but hasn't. Query's been with him a month at this point.
