@mandigarlyn I'm in the same boat, I've had a full out with her since June and she's not responded to any of my emails since. I'm assuming we've been ghosted. =/


For the sake of clarity, I'm updating this comment. I'm doing something I normally never do, which is querying an agent again after being ghosted on a full with a new project. Kinda curious to see if she ghosts on that too or replies. I'll update if I get any sort of response, and if not, then I'm done trying to get an answer.
God speed everyone.

Sadly, I'm closing out my full as a CNR after 9+ months and no response to my nudge at the 8-month mark. I see she responded to TheGaffer27 on an August full after less than four months, but that she's ghosted others that also sent their fulls early in the year. She may be one of those who seldom reads unless nudged with *an offer*. I'm discouraged by this seeming trend that agents respond to queries fairly timely, but then sending your full is like sending it down a black hole.

Nice rejection, liked the concept, not invested in the writing, invited to submit other work.

@SRiddick, that stinks for both of us. Hate to think of an agent ghosting on a full. It’s like I feel I will always be waiting and hoping. At least a form rejection brings clear closure.

Rena requested my full in February 2022 and I sent it same day. I nudged with my revised full manuscript in June. I have not heard back. Should I consider this a rejection?
