    Email Query.

    Excellent response time.

    Read my whole MS and gave a page of valuable critique, then talked on the phone for an hour.

    Offered respresentation but was gracious enough to wait till I had heard from all other interested parties till I made a decision.

    Has some 16 years exp, principly in NF technical books, but is pushing to branch out into NF narratives.

    Seemed very amicable and professional

    You weren't kidding about excellent response time. Sent a query, got a request for proposal 20 minutes later. He passed on it 5 days later.

    Very professional. I'd say if you do the kind of stuff he handles, he would be a great choice.
