I was asked for the full MS over a year and a half ago. No response, so I wrote him off, but I was hoping for some kind of feedback, so I sent a reminder email. He wrote back sorry for the delay, he did read it, and it "wasn't for him." Seriously? You wait a year and a half to get THAT kind of feedback?!? I sure won't bother to send him any future MS.

I had the same experience as everyone else. Full request in January, I've sent him two nudges, haven't heard from him in six months.

Good to know all this as if you get a full request, it obviously means next to nothing.

I had a similar experience to kfaatz925. Full request in January of 2019, nudge in September after seeing that he'd left Red Sofa and founded a new agency (which I only discovered through Twitter). He said it was still under consideration. Another followup last month and no response. It's now been over a year and a half, so I think it's safe to say my manuscript is no longer under consideration.

Seems like ole Erik is taking a break. He's either skiing or tweeting.

As of today - Jan 10, 2020, a year later - I've had no response on the full. Nudged him in October, using the general email address at his new agency. He replied and said he "should have it read soon," but since it's been so long, I'm considering this a CNR. Per this thread, sounds like I'm not the only one who's had this kind of experience with him.

Has anyone ever heard back on a full from him? I nudged him earlier this year to notify him that I'd substantially revised the MS, but heard nothing back then either. According to the timeline, it doesn't look like he's ever replied to a full request, but that seems weird?

Is Erik taking a break from answering queries? The timeline says he hasn't answered queries since Mid-Oct. 2019
