was referred by a friend, sent query on the 26th and was asked for a full MS that day.

Rejection 6/8 by Bill himself. It was clear he'd read the whole book and was very kind and supportive. Assured me I would find an agent for the book and that it was a matter of fit. He seems to be generally nice, but the specificity and care he put into his rejection was very kind as this was my first submission ever.

LGBT Literary Fiction

Note: In case anyone is wondering, the full request was personalized, in that it sounded like it came from a real actual person, but from whom, no idea, as it was signed by "The Clegg Agency" which I assume was an intern or assistant.

4/13 sent query via general email (with referral); general email requested full (felt like a form request)
4/21 nudge with offer, no response
5/14 withdrew submission (accepted other offer)

From beginning to end never had any direct correspondence with Bill; have not received any response either to nudges or withdrawals so I dunno!

Has anyone tried to follow up on a full request? Looks like he hasn't responded since May 2020 to a full

so are agents really not responding to fulls with rejections any more or are people just not putting their responses in?
