Received automated response saying ICM is closed from the 15th to Jan 3.
Hopefully, that doesn't mean closed to queries and that she'll still consider those sent between these dates.

Does anyone know if Alexandra gets bothered with sending her a revised manuscript weeks after sending her the requested full? I don't want to irritate her. Thanks!!

Always disappointing to have a rejection on a full, but appreciate that she took the time to consider it. I believe the rejection was form - excited by the concept but didn't fall in love with the voice as much as she'd hoped. It would have been great for some more specific feedback, but I understand she's extremely busy.

Thank you for thinking to query me with your project. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like a good fit for my list at this time. Again, thank you, and best of luck finding an agent.

Best,
Alexandra

@eebnhab I've had a full with her since 2/22/17. I know she's super busy so I'm not planning on nudging any time soon. Seems like she usually responds eventually.

Rejection received today 11/6! Good luck y'all :)

Nudge w/ revisions: 7/22/17 No word back when I sent the revisions.
Accepted rep from another agent on 9/21/17. Notified Ms. Machinist and she got back to me promptly, thanking me for the notification and wishing me luck.

I think she just has a lot on her plate and is taking a while to get to fulls. So if she still has yours, don't give up hope!
