re cmg436's comment - Thanks: I hadn't noted that the agency says they want to be notified if other agents request the full manuscript.
That provides an opportunity for an early nudge! I too have now (Feb 17) let Madeleine know I've had requests (none of which have yet responded further, BTW).[71k suspense.]

For those interested (like a previous poster mentioned), it doesn't say on the website if no answer means no, but my automated response to confirm receipt says the following: "If you have not heard from us within twelve weeks, please take this to mean that we are no longer considering representation."

It doesn't clarify their lack of information on whether you can query another at the agency if one passes, but I'm going to assume I can unless they tell me otherwise. If I get an update on that, I'll let y'all know.

Are they a no response means no agency? And do they allow you to query another agent at the agency if the first one passes? I can’t find that info.
