@AletheaStauron If you check out Sarah's (or other agent's) timelines, you will notice certain patterns of behavior. It looks like Sarah takes on queries in large blocks, and possibly holds onto others for later consideration. It seems to take awhile. Also, most agents will decline if nudged, not because you nudged (although you don't want to be annoying...), but because you asked for an answer, and you got one, albeit sooner rather than later. Good luck w/ your story.

@AletheaStauron To nudge or not to nudge? Sometimes we just want to identify a concrete, one-size-fits-all process to make sense of the madness. I've nudged and received rejections, requests for partials/fulls, as well as, been ignored. It just depends on the Agent. I keep the nudge light (Perhaps my query submission was lost in transmission?). Either way, the response (or lack thereof) tells me all I need to know.

When I nudge, I'm kind and simply send a reminder of my manuscript that they have. Generally, I don't nudge. The one time I did to an agent who had my manuscript, I believe she was overloaded and just replied with a rejection. In fact, every nudge ended in rejection. I'm staying away from nudging. Maybe I don't do it right. Somebody well versed in the linguistic properties of selling their words might me better suited to help on this one. We could both learn something.
