@anotherwriter - I did when I queried her with another project many years ago, and even then I was one of the few on QT that could say they got a response back to their partial/full. Now it seems like she only requests but never responds. Agents are not responsive to partials and fulls like they used to, it seems to be the new norm for them to just not respond, not even with a form rejection. I get that a lot of stuff is going on in publishing (burnout, folks leaving the industry, layoffs, imprints folding, etc.), but it's really sad and demoralizing how agents have all around stopped being considerate, warm, kind, and encouraging to querying writers.
