She's had my full for a whole year. I nudged her in Oct, 2017 and received a response that it was still on her "to read" list. I think it's safe to change the status to "closed" now. Sigh.

Sarahh - I asked a similar question in another forum recently, and the general feeling I got back was that she's quite bogged down right now. Her queue not moving at all since November has me a bit worried too.

Has anyone heard back from this agent? It's been a few months and it doesn't look like she's responded to anyone, so I'd love to query someone else at the agency.

HI sarahh,
Not necessarily. A lot of agents start out with day jobs, so she may be indicating she is about to go full time agent. It could be either way. I'll watch her website to see what happens.

FYI I saw on Twitter that she just handed in her notice at her day job... I assume that means she's leaving the agent world?

nudged w/ offer of publication 8/20/17
(I hear she's running behind a little, because of unavoidable Life stuff.)
CNR - 9-30-17 This one was really hard, but I nudged a couple of times, through a couple of channels (here and on It came down to a solid offer from a publisher I already work with, or waiting on Ms. Rutter. When I'm back in the market for querying, I'll definitely try her again...after checking her social media status to see her current response times and client reviews.
