So, this agent doesn’t seem to respond to fulls. I’ve had one out with her since March 2018. I’ve since written and am querying another novel. Since I haven’t even nudged, I sent her a nudge and asked if she’d be interested in reading the new book, in the off chance she’d read it. Can’t hurt, but I don’t really understand why she often doesn’t respond to fulls. I’m afraid she may wait to see if there’s interest from other agents before reading. Just an FYI.

Update: she replied, still has the full and will take a look. Hopefully, she’ll respond one way or another. This is the last full I have put on this novel, and while I love it. I’d like to be able to shelve it & move on.

Well, that was quick. The way the rejection was stated, I'm not sure whether to query another agent with this firm:

Thank you so much for allowing The Knight Agency to consider your material. Unfortunately, after carefully reviewing your query, we’ve determined that this particular project isn’t the right fit for us at this time. As I’m sure you know, the publishing industry changes swiftly now, as do readers’ tastes and trends. As a result, our own agents’ needs shift and change, as well; therefore, we would like to encourage you to consider querying us with future projects as you may deem appropriate.

I have no clue, other than the email she sent me. But I’ll wait. I’m not in a hurry :)
