He's had my full since June 2016. Obviously I've written it off at this point, but when I did nudge him in March 2017 he said it was still under consideration.

@Megdanger, I had a manuscript with him out from March of 2017. I nudged with an offer on a different MS a few weeks ago, and he promised to read the first MS and get back to me. Never heard back.

Yeah, he has had my full since November. Not a peep. I've heard from two lucky ducks who did get an offer from him that it came after post-offer nudges so take that data point for what it's worth.

@Megdanger, I'm very curious about that as well. At this point my guess is he's just requesting fulls and not reading them unless you have an offer from someone else.

Ok but does he actually read any of the fulls people send him? Can anyone here confirm even a rejection on a full recently? It seems like he's just hoarding them.

@MrMcCoy and @Megdanger What concerns me is that his timeline basically shows no action on those fulls. I've submitted to other agents who request a lot of fulls, and typically, even if they're really behind, you can see that they regularly work on reading and responding to fulls. I'm wondering what Leon's strategy is.

@Megdanger Same. He scooped up my full in a day and is approaching a year of having it. When I nudged he said that he still plans on getting to it, but to let him know if I get another offer. From what I can tell he has a very long list of fulls to read. FYI my full was sent 03/22/2017

@shewrites, awesome! If he likes what he sees he's very good about quickly requesting a full. Once he has it though...well, I'm just shy of having waited a year, nudged around 5 months-ish and he said it's not rejected til he sends a rejection so, we'll see lol.
