I was very surprised to get this full request, but she must really be using this time that she's closed to new queries to work on her backlog. Hope this info helps people who are still waiting & wondering!

@rvsesi9 From the timeline, this agent isn't operating under the Triada 2-weeks and has responded to most queries in the 50+ date range, so I don't think you need to nudge this early for a query

Will she still answer queries that were sent before she closed to them? On the Triada website, it says that if you do not get a reply in 2 weeks, then your query was not received. I submitted my query to her on 7/23/21. Should I send a nudge?

Elle Thompson requested my ms. back in December 2020. Nine months and two nudges later, I'm still waiting for her response to the material. The lesson I've learned? Just because an agent requests your manuscript, it doesn't mean you'll ever hear from them again.

@A_Norvelli and @tialsb
Thanks to you both for your advice. I never received a confirmation of receipt (yeah, I know, I should have followed up earlier on that :-) ), so I could follow up to confirm that, rather than a nudge. However, I'm worried that by responding to our current email thread, my manuscript will be pushed to the top of her inbox, and since she reads oldest>newest, I'm afraid my manuscript will be pushed back even further in her queue. So much anxiety lol.

I saw on Twitter the day after I sent my nudge that she closed to queries until October. I know some authors are frustrated that she has had our manuscripts for so long. But, at least according to QueryTracker, it seems Elle requests more full manuscripts than the average agent, so it only makes sense that it takes her more time to read through them all. It's hard to wait, but I'm excited to hear that she has closed to queries to focus on the manuscripts she has received. Good luck everyone!

Are you asking for a nudge to see if she's received it or about her reviewing the full MS? She requested a full from me in July, and I haven't heard back from her receiving it yet. I think she goes through the emails from old->new. So, if it's just a nudge to see if she's received it, it doesn't hurt to try. If it's a nudge to check if she's read the whole thing I'd wait.

Since it hasn’t been that long and she seems to be way behind on fulls from before yours I wouldn’t nudge unless you have an offer from another agent. Sounds like you may have to wait until September. Sorry, I know it’s hard to wait!

@DaisyWeb, thanks for including her auto response! I saw that she was closed on Twitter and I've been debating on whether I should follow up on a full manuscript I sent in May. Does anyone have any thoughts on that? Best to send a nudge or just leave it be since her auto reply says she's moving through her inbox?

must have just missed update on closed status, sent final nudge before I saw she was closed and got the response below.
excited to know she's still working on outstanding queries and plans to respond. good luck ALL!


My inbox is closed to queries between 4 August 2021 and 30 September 2021. I am working to catch up on all outstanding queries and manuscripts. If I do not reply to a follow-up, it is because I do have your project and am working to resolve it. I appreciate your patience.
