cross fingers. Feel a little justified to verify as a no from one is a no from all at the agency.
@SomeLady--can't tell you whether this was a good idea or not--she responded shortly afterward with a form letter rejection.
Would it have been that anyway? probably. AT least I can move on.

I nudged Lauren about my query, knowing that it had probably been rejected. I really appreciate that she took the time to send back a quick email saying it wasn't for her.

Did she close to queries and I missed it? I queried on 3/22 and it looks like her last response to a query was 3/18. Just curious if I should close this out or resubmit later.

I queried Lauren on September 4th and haven't heard anything. I see where some people have received rejections. Should I nudge?

Nudge with offer of rep- Lauren responded quickly and personally asking for the full manuscript to read before my deadline to the other agent.

Update: Accepted another agent's offer but she did get back to me and said she didn't have time to read my book before my deadline and wished me luck and congratulations on my offer.
