Does anyone know if she's still responding? I have another agent at the same agency that I was considering, but I don't want to close this query out without giving her enough time.

Edit: at six months. I nudged to offer edited pages twice over the last four months (I found a stronger way to open the chapter and wanted to send the updated scene). No responses to those nor the initial query. Pretty sure I'm not going to hear.

Allisonwall This means she's finally reviewing queries sent in Feb. I wonder if she had a personal problem or if she got busy with other things. According to Publisher's Marketplace, she's had 7 deals in 2020, 2 for new books, one audio rights, and the rest foreign rights, which I'm not sure she would handle herself.

It seems to take about two-three months for a response.

Nudged after 71 days. Anticipating CNR, but wanted to do "the right thing" before I submit to other agents at the agency.

Based on the data available in QT, it appears this agent was quite diligent about responding to queries until the last week in August. Since then, her reply rate has plunged dramatically, and the last record QT has of her replying to a query was mid-October. Since then, nothing. Her "reply rate" displayed on QT is still respectable, only because it's calculated on a rolling 12-month window. As her silence continues, the number drops a little every day as it converges on zero.

One can only speculate as to why this happened, but I would respectfully suggest that it is not worth the effort to query this agent until such time as the situation changes for the better.
