I had literally JUST CNR'd this about an hour ago - then got a full request from her! What a nice surprise!

My full has been out for 189 days now. No word on a nudge I sent in May. Not CNR'ing it quite yet, but if she were truly interested I'm sure I would've heard back by now.

Update: it's been over a year with no word so like others are saying, it seems she's pretty unlikely to respond to fulls.

Please be aware:

My former agent worked at Fuse Literary. When she made the decision to leave agenting, Gordon and Laurie (the heads of the agency) informed her clients that the agency would not necessarily keep us on. We waited three weeks to hear back, with no communication about our work from the agency. Most of us were dropped with a copy-paste impersonal letter with no references.

I'm assuming she's either very busy or my query fell through the cracks. Either way, it seemed like the smartest move to withdraw and move on.

Dear Shanda,
Thank you for sending me your query. Unfortunately, this particular work is just not right for me.
I wish you the best in your literary endeavors.
