Always verify agent's information before sending your query. Verify the agent's query preferences, contact information, genres of interest, and if the agent is still open to queries.

Although QueryTracker tries to stay current, it is not always easy. Never trust any single source for agent information (and yes, this includes QueryTracker).

Review the user comments for more information, and always follow exactly what it says on the agent's website.

And NEVER give money to an "agent".

Leave comments about your experiences with this literary agent, or read what other authors have to say.

Yeah, I figured I would have to write her off.

@KAusten Hmmm, then at this point I would definitely concentrate my efforts on other agents. Truly, some agents, like Roberta, seem great but when they say they have a "full client list", keep closing themselves to queries, and they're lagging in responding to submissions then I take it that they just aren't looking for any new clients right now. It's frustrating, I know. Anytime I get a query that manages to make it to a submission of a partial or full manuscript, I get excited. It's a real downer when the waiting drags on forever. But it just sounds like Roberta has her hands full right now. Hopefully other agents reply to you soon. :)

Also, keep in mind that she's a working author. She could have her own author deadlines that she's dealing with so that could have an influence on this too.

Thanks Shellyboo. When I saw she responded to your partial, I decided to nudge her (now over a month). Haven't heard anything.
Her website says they are not considering any new material in any genre, unless a NY author seeking new rep, and are closed to submissions until August 1st. At least it's a date for further query consideration for those who want to query her later.

She responded to mine, KAusten, and we had a query date at around the same time. Maybe she's still considering your partial submission. She noted in the rejection that she sent me a couple of weeks ago that she's really backlogged and is taking longer to respond. You can try nudging her, but I suspect she's one of those agents that's just going to take awhile... probably a great while. If you have any other agents that you're querying or waiting to hear back from, I'd focus on them instead. I've got a few myself that I emotionally put on the backburner because they're taking a looooooong time to respond compared to others.
