Full Request plus 3-5 page synopsis: 3-1-18
Sent Materials: 3-2-18
Nudge: 4-9-18 no response
Nudge 5-2-18, Gina responded and apologized for the wait, saying that my MS was in the final read and that it should only be another "couple of weeks". It's been 5 weeks and still waiting. Still hopeful!
Nudge 6-25-18, nothing yet, but I hear it's normal for these things to take this long.

EQ sent a THIRD time due to no response (originally sent back in February, then re-sent in April -- Twitter says she responds to all).

Don't know what to make of the continuous skip-over of my query. Hoping 3rd time is a charm.

JPaulArden: Glad to hear you got some feedback. I submitted a full early in the new year, have politely nudged twice and received no response--so apparently their saintliness is selective.

I was so touched to receive this thoughtful, helpful, and kind note. So incredibly better than to receive a form letter . . . or nothing at all. And this was sent back quickly . . . in just a week. These agents must all be wearing halos.

Subject: Re: Query THE ANGEL'S ROBOT

Dear Mr. Sherman,

Thank you for writing us about your project. We read and consider each query carefully. While your project has merit, I had some issues with your story that caused me to pass on it. It seemed to lack characterization, in that I couldn't find a reason to care about the characters early on. It is important to establish a relationship between the reader and characters early to keep the audience engaged. In addition, I had hoped to see more description from the five senses in order to ground the reader in each new scene.

That being said, publishing is a very subjective industry, and what doesn’t work for us may work for another agency. We wish you the best in finding a home for you manuscript.

Thank you for submitting to Talcott Notch for our consideration. Unfortunately, we have decided to pass on this project.
We think the book sounds interesting, but that the subject is outside of our wheelhouse and so we wouldn't be the right agency to represent your manuscript. Publishing is very subjective, so what isn't right for our list may be exactly what another agency is looking for.
Thank you again and we wish you the best of luck in finding representation in the future.

@WhiteGardenia, I re-nudged her, and she apologized for the wait, said my ms was in the final read, and said that I should hear in a couple of weeks.

@ChickLitChick, I have queried her twice with no response. If everyone supposedly receives a response to their query (per website), the lack of communication from this agent concerns me (especially since I tried a second time).
