Nudge 5/12. Response time is 8 weeks for fulls, so I waited an extra week. She's still behind on reading.

Kelly just tweeted: "I'm very behind on requested reading. I'm blocking off time this week to catch up. Don't hesitate to nudge if I'm late on my stated deadline"

Info via Twitter: PitMad queries count as partials and will take longer for a reply. So for those of us still waiting, just hang in there!

Thanks, bnnk2013! Since she responds to every query, it might be time for a nudge.

She requested full MS after my #pitmad query.

Have any March #PitMad queries gotten a response? I'm trying to decide if my #PitMad query got lost or if she just hasn't gotten to them yet.

Agent in an upcoming conference (Chicago).
4/9 = according to Twitter, a 100% empty inbox.

She sent me a rejection within 26 hrs; two other agents sent me requests the same day (today).

Maybe she's rushing? (I have no idea. Totally clueless opinion here.)
Quick note: Location: MN, if you hadn't noticed.
