I initially queried Andrea Somberg, whom I'd pitched at a conference and said she'd like to hear from me when I finished. She passed my query on to Cate, who requested the full. After 8 weeks, I nudged and asked if it was still under consideration but she never replied at all.

Update: A week later, I decided to ask one more time, since not having a rejection from her was keeping me from querying any other agents at her agency. I wrote and said this specifically, and she replied promptly with a pass. But all's well that ends well, because then I queried someone else at the agency and she immediately asked for the full!

"Thank you for thinking of me and Harvey Klinger Agency, but I'm going to pass on this project. Unfortunately, this feels too similar to a project I already represent and thus I don't feel I am the best agent to champion this work. Publishing is so very subjective, and while I may not be the best fit for this project, your work may be just what another agent is seeking. Thank you for considering me and best of luck with your future queries."
