Says she tries to respond to all, but also states that if you haven't heard back in 6 months, it is a pass.

Cheryl King, Jessica is not shady. But she seems to be very busy.

Check your junk folder! I never thought this would happen to me.
First queried on 10/10 with query, synopsis, and first three chapters.
Nudged with offer of pub on 10/16
Just found (on 10/21) in my junk folder an email from 10/16 that says "Thank you for the update, Cheryl. I'm behind on submission reading right now, but I remember your query from the Great Depression element. Would you like to send me the full and then set up a time to talk on Monday or Tuesday?" It's now Wednesday. Great. I sent her my manuscript right away.

Nudged on 10/27 because two small publishers are awaiting an answer.

UPDATE: She asked to see the offers from the publishers, so I sent them to her (now I find out I shouldn't have done that, and it ticks me off that she asked in the first place, then). In an e-mail conversation, she asked me to ask the offering publishers for more time so she can review the contracts for me. Mind you, she never offered representation, and I never asked her to review the contracts. And she has yet to give me feedback on my manuscript, and I don't even know if she's read it. It all just seems so shady, so I'm going to sign with one of the publishers unagented. This whole agent business (aka game) stinks.
