cdechterling Eight weeks is very short. If she is taking 6 months to respond just to queries I'd image it would be at least that long if not longer for fulls. Some agents are quick, but others 6 month or even a year to reply to full manuscripts.

I don't see anything on the website about her average response time on fulls. Is eight weeks long?

Form Q: 10/20/18

Just saw her tweets about the delayed responses being a good thing—here’s hoping. I also saw her tweet about the friend to enemy to lover MSWL, and I want to reply with mine, mine, mine! But I’m pretty sure it’s bad form to tag an MSWL after the query is sent

Vicorva, she's been using the form for a while because I used the form when I submitted in August.

Just to remind everyone that Caitlin also used to be no response means no -- if you emailed via her form, you're guaranteed a response. If via email, you are not. I don't know when she started using the form so maybe this isn't relevant to everyone, but I know before she had it, it was a no response means no policy.

I queried her back in August and am still waiting. That tweet a few of you mentioned made me very happy. QT had auto CNRed on my at 120 days, but it let me change it back to "none yet" for response. :-)

Sent query about my novel, Fake. on 11/30. Received a nice rejection message a day later.

Tweet from Caitlin 11/29/18: "If you've queried me and are wondering why others who queried after you have gotten passes and you haven't, it's because I'm still considering yours! This is a GOOD thing--please be patient! I do respond to everyone."

Wow, okay, I guess I won't close mine out just yet! I sent her a SF on July 30th.
