Has anyone any experience of submitting a full to this agent and getting a reply? She requested my full back in October and I've yet to hear. Whats the usual timeline for these things? How long should I wait before I discount this request or does she usually respond? Many thanks.

Query and partial sent . Got this back the same day:
Dear Mandy
Thanks for being in touch. Loving the sound of this – do please email the rest direct to me and I’ll read asap.
All very best

I'm excited but not hopeful. Will just have to wait and see.
