She requests a fair number of manuscripts, but won't read without a competing offer. I got one, and she read the manuscript to the end and gave nice comments before passing. Or, rather, I don't want to be inaccurate. She might glance at the manuscript even if there's no competing offer, but she is unlikely to take it seriously. That's my read on the situation

I gave it 6+ months from full ms request, then nudged twice, two weeks apart. Moving on...

No response. Don't plan on nudging until the end of the month (May). It seems from the comments that it is not uncommon to hear nothing after a full request. Has anyone queried, gotten a request for a full manuscript and then simply not heard back?
