@careyfblankenship: Thanks for the warning. Personally I think writers should be far harsher on agents who give form letters to fulls with zero feedback after such frustrating lengths of time! I just had a similar experience with another agent and was equally unimpressed. I wish writers would be far less tolerant of this practice and avoid submitting to agents who clearly take them for granted.

Sorry to hear you’ve had a similar experience.
Like you, I nudged, but there was no response. It sounds like, based on her history, you might receive a form letter like the rest of us. No one here is saying an agent “owes” us anything, mind you, but typically some feedback from a full (esp. a YA fantasy matching her mswl) is good form, and silence is something we avoid anyway, so it might be for the best anyway! Keep at it!
@careyfblankenship: I feel your pain! 7 months with zero feedback is frustrating and unprofessional

@jenniferauthor, I understand your frustrations, but if she's not an agent you plan on working with, I strongly advise to consider withdrawing your query. By having her read your submission even though you don't plan on signing with her, that means she'd be wasting time on a manuscript that she could be using on someone else's manuscript.

Penny Moore is an unprofessional agent who frequently throws shade on OTHER AGENTS on twitter. At the time of writing, a well-known agent won a prestigious award, and multiple literary agents congratulated them. Ms. Moore, on the other hand, proceeded to minimize their achievements and complain that "No agent of color has won, it's unfair." Ok, as a minority writer, there's a TIME AND PLACE FOR EVERYTHING. Throwing hate on your colleague when you should celebrate them is an example.

Still waiting but I'm not going to accept her offer even if she offers.

Full Request: 4/01
Nudge: 10/01
Rejected: 11/01

It was frustrating for me to receive a rejection on a full after she had it for seven months with zero feedback. It was just a form rejection. But I know she is very busy. I am just glad I have an answer. Good luck to everyone else who queries her! :)

@billcarson I'm glad to know it isn't just me. She requested my full in February as well. I recently nudged and never heard back. Very frustrating.

First time I've never had a response from a full request. Strikes me as unprofessional. I know agents are busy, but she's on twitter all the time, so has time for that, apparently, which tells me its better as I wouldn't want an agent where communication is an issue, anyway.
