Mine has been with him for 67 days, with a nudge partway through, so I'd say he actually is missing / skipping some queries. Unsure whether to try again, or just write this one off.

EDIT: Heard back with a form rejection after 80 days - suspect everyone else here is right and he just struck a vein of missed queries in his spam folder!

Can't find my original note:
I closed this out months ago and received a form rejection over the weekend. He must have found me in a spam folder.

Queried on June 8th of 2018, got a form rejection April 20th of 2019, so long after I had marked as CNR that I didn’t recognize the name! Still, I do appreciate a real rejection even after so long.

Form response 55 days from query. Disappointing, however, I know there was a lot wrong with my query letter so I appreciate at least getting a response.

@fordwalker

I've been with him for 50 days. I would write it off, but he's responded so fast to other people, maybe through an assistant. We may have made it through the initial screening? I'm from the short story circuit, so long wait times are generally a good omen. Anyway... Send out other queries and nudge ifI get an offer elsewhere. That seems to be the best way to respond. I've only queried 6 agents to far and I am waiting on 4 for upward if two months now. I'm sick of it, but the only forward movement is to keep reaching out... blegh

jasmine09, I personally would not nudge until after the kind of standard 8 weeks. Some agents don't read queries in order, and lots of them keep some aside for later consideration if they think they might be interested. Other people might disagree, but I'd wait to nudge until 8 weeks. Personally, I usually wait even longer.

I did not hear back as of yet. I'm new to the writing community and was wondering if I should re query/nudge considering people who submitted after me got a response.

@Fordwalker - good idea to reach back out. Seems he replies really quickly (usually).

2/16: Most of his responses seem super quick, regardless of whether they're positive or negative, but judging by Data Explorer it looks as though mine's been skipped altogether. I'm never sure if I should nudge when that happens, or just sit on my hands for six weeks.

EDIT 3/10: I've just re-queried; given his usually fast responses, it seems my initial query from nearly 40 days ago must have slipped between the cracks.
