That is a standard reply of his. Doesn't mean it couldn't hurt to have an extra eye take a peek, but keep in mind that is one his standard rejections

Hi JRo

Would you perhaps be willing to have a look at at the first three chapters?

Please let me know.

Here is what he said about my partial:

I felt the voice was a little too stereotypical for the audience.

He read my partial before I revised and made it more serious and darker in April.
