@Biogrimm15 I’m having the same issue, my full has been with them since mid Feb and I received no reply when I emailed a nudge/did you get the MS? email. Not sure what to think. It’s happening with 3 agents who have my full, radio silence from all. Is this common practice, to not reply when fulls are requested?

Emailed Mr. Cobb with a nudge to check in and make sure he received partial 1-19-19
No answer as of 1-28-19
CNR 4-1-19
A little shocked that I never heard anything back after sending the partial as requested even after the nudge to both Mr. Getzler and Mr. Cobb.

He seems to have a quick response time, so I'm assuming 6 weeks is long enough. It looks like he doesn't respond to queries if they come while he's out of the office. Maybe check Twitter to see if he's on vacation before querying?

Yay - glad I nudged! Got an email this morning...
'Thank you very much for your email, and nudge. You are correct, I do answer my queries, and while it can take time, not usually forever! Let me take a look quickly, and get back to you after the weekend.'
Fingers crossed!

Resubmitted 18-Jan-19, reminding him of his MSWL tweets and, based on his promise of replying to all, questioning whether he received my query.

Deciding whether to get in touch again - he's still requesting exactly what my novel is about (Historical set in Ukraine), but I've had no reply. Website says no reply is not rejection. But this is ages old now! I've approached him on Twitter today 16 Jan

Website says 'Josh responds to all email queries, which should include a pitch letter and the FIRST five (or so) pages of the manuscript. Silence does not mean a pass, it just means the queue is long. Please do NOT send queries by mail—they will not be answered.'
EQ: 9/13
Re-queried: 10/19 (what the heck - seems such a good match!)
Russian historical
Considering he tweeted: ' looking for adult historical novel from an unusual era/place...' AND he says he replies to all queries AND I've been having problems getting messages that use the Godaddy server, I have queried again (11/15)
