@PenelopeWaits: If it were me I would definitely nudge again. I'm pretty sure this Monday was considered the end of the "holiday break" in the publishing world.

While slightly disappointed that Mr. Schneider turned down my manuscript, he was still very prompt with his reply to my email Query and very polite in his response.
Still so much better than someone who would be rude/dismissive or leave you hanging in the wind.

I would gladly recommend other writers to him.

Form rejection after 13 days for literary fiction:

I greatly appreciate the opportunity to consider your query—thanks for sending it.

Unfortunately, the query didn't appeal quite enough to my own tastes to inspire me to offer representation or further consideration of your project. I wish I had the time to respond to everyone with constructive criticism, but it would be overwhelming, hence this form response.

This business is highly subjective; many people whose work I haven't connected with have gone on to critical and commercial success. So, keep after it.

I am grateful that you have afforded me this opportunity to find out about you and your project, and wish you the best of success with your current and future creative work.

All best wishes,
Eddie Schneider

He must be knocking through a pile of queries today, by the looks. Three rejections here within minutes of each other! Good luck, all.

Nudged twice already. I wonder if my email got marked as spam or was just swallowed into the ether...
