From comments here, it seems like this agent requests material but feels no obligation to bother getting back to the author, even after a nudge after a reasonable waiting time. Ugh.

JUju, you need to get the 2014 edition of the Guide of Literary Agents and check out their blog too for updated information. Dump that website!

jujubee6, Eliza moved to Inkwell from Golomb some time ago. As per the Inkwell site, "Prior to joining InkWell, Eliza Rothstein worked for The Susan Golomb Literary Agency."

I'm afraid the other site you mentioned has outdated information.

Equery: 11/13/12
Full Request: 11/14/12
Received rejection on original query from someone else at the agency: 2/1/13. Emailed Eliza asking for clarification
Told that it was still under consideration and she would give me a response in a few weeks: 2/6/13
3/16-Nudge, no reponse
5/1-Nudge, no response
8/26-Nudge, no response

I might nudge one more time, but it's almost been a year. Anyone know if she's accepted any clients during this time?

I'm going through the exact same thing. An agent requested only the first chapter of my work which was only 19pgs. I sent her a follow-up "nudge" email after 3 wks and a couple of days and haven't gotten a response for two days. I'm worried because this agent usually responds rather quick to follow-ups, plus she seems like a reasonable person. I'm not sure what to think, but I'm stressin' because I really came far with her just to get rejected with a no response. But then again only time will tell! Does anyone have a response or advice to this?

Hard to say. I've known agents to take up to six months with fulls. A lot of times agents will not respond to nudges and just respond when they're through with your ms. But then there are agents who just don't bother to respond at all. Some scary stories here on the comments boards of QT. Tough industry. Hopefully Eliza will respond soon. (though there is no need to inform agents about subsequent/other full requests--they don't care unless you've received an offer of rep.)

Okay, so... EQ May 5, Full request May 5.
On September 7 I sent a polite follow up email, asking for status, and letting her know that another agent was looking at the full.

Nothing... does that mean no interest? still thinking about it? who knows?

I would think that if no interest, she'd have sent a one-line email saying so... but what do I know?

thanks for your thoughts, folks.

Catherine, I think you meant "nudging" in which we do politely. We don't think of it as "bugging", which sounds rude. Fingers crossed.
