Thanks @adr900 for responding. I know in the current climate it's normal for agents to have fulls for longer periods of time (like 6 months to a year) before they respond and that more and more people are ghosting on fulls. However that bums me out. I hope she's just behind and this isn't an indication she ghosts on fulls. I'm crossing my fingers for both of us that at least we'll get a response one day.

Has anyone heard back on a full request? She's a newer agent, so I'm not sure how she works yet. I know some agents will respond to all fulls even if it takes a long time. Others only respond if they're interested or the full gets an offer from someone else. It looks like she hasn't responded to any fulls since she opened to queries except one and that one was within 2 weeks--leading me to believe it was read quickly because the person got an offer. Anyone hear anything? I know I could nudge, but nudging terrifies me! If she's still interested, but it will take a while to hear back, I'm fine with that. It's just the not knowing if I'll ever hear back that stresses me out.

I sent her my full in July and nudged early January. Haven't heard anything

@potatochip She hasn't responded to anything since Aug 10th...and she's still responding to queries from May! Mine's only 20 days old so I got a ways to go...

Although it's the first time I've been invited to query an agent with future projects, so I guess I don't suck too much. ;-)
