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?

FR: April 4, 2019

In July, well past the 12 week response time quoted in the email from her assistant, I emailed to inquire about my submission, as I still had another agent I wanted to query at WH if Susan should choose to pass. No response. I sent another follow-up email this October, not wanting to violate their rule of no simultaneous submissions to two agents until I received a rejection. No response, again. Not sure how to proceed . . .

Is anyone else having problems emailing her? Every time I email to SGolombSubmissions@writershouse.com it says undeliverable. Anything helps. Thanks.
