CatherineHumphrey,
I nudged Shannon with my previous project when she didn't reply within the stated time frame on their website (I think I nudged at week 5 or 6 before they added the bit about Covid). She responded very well to it and gave me a prompt response with my follow-up. So, in my opinion it doesn't hurt to try.

Has any one else been waiting for a response from Shannon for several weeks now? On the agency website it says they try to respond within 4 - 6 weeks, but with Covid, it may be longer. It's been 8 weeks for me now. Wondering if I should nudge or wait a little longer. Anyone else in the same boat?

Nice rejection overall, still a rejection. My dragons are dead for now it seems. At least I have closure. :)

The site is down, but Shannon said on twitter that she's still reading queries: https://twitter.com/ssnow_lit_agent/status/1442308592124628993

"Thought I’d answer this here for everyone. Our site has been down being redesigned. It should be back up any day as we’re fine-tuning now. You can still query me at: query@cmalit.com. Include 1st 5 pages pasted below the query. ??#writingcommunity #amquerying"

BJepsonBrown it's down for me too. Was going to double check when to nudge since it's been well over 8 weeks for my query and she says she responds to all

Is the website down for other people too?
