For those asking about normal response times, I'd like to add that she requested my MS in Jan 2018 and I didn't hear back until December 2018 (11 months), and this was after two nudges on my part. So, I think it does just take her a while to consider fulls. When she did reply, she passed, but provided some nice feedback.

Polite step-aside today from a nudge with an offer of representation. I queried in September and she requested the full right away, but due to personal/family issues hadn't had a chance to read yet. For those waiting, that's why she's taking so long to respond.

Hello everyone,
Ms. Knight asked for my full manuscript in October 2020 and I haven't heard from her since. I emailed their administration asking for a follow-up, but haven't received a respons either. Is this normal, and should I consider this a rejection?

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.

@diannecabelus if she asked for the full, go ahead and send it, don’t worry about the genres.

If she asked for a full request but now no longer represents my genre what do you think?

How are we supposed to "close this out" if Deidre Knight passes our manuscript to one of her colleagues? Erase it? CNR? Rejection?

Update: thanks Patrick!

Jessie1994, In the end, it is still a rejection, so record it as that. But congrats, because that's the best kind of rejection you can get.
