I have a full out to Nicole James with the same experience. It's been about a year with no response to polite nudge at seven month mark. I closed mine out.

She seems to have a very poor response rate, but I submitted to based on her genre preferences like so many others. I may try to re-submit to the agency preferencing that. Thoughts?

Anyone ever gotten a response on a full request? It's been a year and three months with nothing and no responses to nudges. I'm thinking I should just close out.

EQ 3/5/15 YA fantasy
FR 3/6/15
revised manuscript sent 6/26/15
nudged 11/30/15
12/07/15 she emailed to say she's still considering it and is shamefully, woefully behind on her reading :)
revised manuscript sent 12/03/16, mentioning R&R from other agent and a shift to 3rd POV in the works
confirmed receipt 12/5/16, asked for POV3 version
revised manuscript sent 12/1/17 and told her 3rd POV didn't pan out
12/4/17 rejection, worries this particular kind of fantasy will be difficult to break out in this saturated fantasy YA market.

Closure at last...
