@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?

EQ 10-29-18 from #PitDark
PR from assistant Jonathan Cobb (first 50 pages) 10-29-18, sent 10-31-18
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.

Auto Reply: Out of office until 2/25/19
CNR: 3/29

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?
