Thanks Angelscribe! I'm actually going to nudge him tomorrow, 6 weeks from the date he received the new version! Fingers crossed.

Good luck Olivia. I think that's about three months since you sent it out. Maybe give him another week, since he might be still on X-mas vacation.

In August I got a detailed rejection from Mr. Mandel with the option to revise and resubmit. On Nov. 28 I resubmitted my manuscript with many changes. It's almost one month later. I will likely nudge him in the first week of the new year. Hope that's not too soon.
