From the looks of her Timeline, Caynicole46, doesn't look like she responds much at all. I sent mine on March 6th and crickets...That being said, according to the Query Age, she's requested pages once...and later than 90 days, so I'll stay open...

Full Request + Synopsis: 6/24/22
6/28/22: Madeline personally confirmed receipt of full and synopsis.

Note: The full request came from her assistant, Madeline Ticknor. She said that while Susan and she will try and get back to me as soon as possible, on average they take 6 months to respond back to a full.

No response so far. Considering she responds fast, don't know if her silence is a consideration, or CNR.

Was surprisingly responsive for such a high profile agent up to January this year, but not a logged query response since. Also worth noting, when I nudged on my full (requested December 2020) it turned out that the assistant I'd been directed to send it to had subsequently left Writer's House. Ah well, was a long shot anyway.
