I don't normally send nudges on queries but it seems like she's responded to almost everyone before and after me so I think perhaps it got lost in her spam. :)

Consider that no news may be good news. Many agents have a maybe or look again pile and your submission may be in it (or an intern passed it onto the agent themselves). Immediate rejections could be a sign of something really wrong whereas taking some extra time may mean the agent is pausing to consider. Hope that makes the waiting a little easier for you :)

Totally agree it's not that long (and yes, followed sub guidelines), just curious since so many have heard after me. Wondering if anyone is in the same boat.

Karambelas, a month isn't that long. I'd check to see if you 100% followed submission guidelines. If so, I'd wait. As said, a month isn't that long. With another agent, I saw people who'd queried two weeks after me with a reply, and I hadn't--but mine still came in yesterday.

So I queried on 10/5 and haven't heard anything but it looks like most people have heard back who queried after me... should I re-query her? Anyone still waiting?
