Came back to this, seems like another agent who doesn't respond to fulls. Sigh.

@tnmoore84 I wouldn't CNR if it hasn't been at least 6 months and if you haven't nudged her. It's also worth keeping a full open in case you finish another book and would like to swap out the manuscripts.

Andrea seems like a nice person but she had my full for over a year and when I nudged that I had a competing offer, she said she'd read it and then never got back to me. So...

She routinely requests fulls lightning fast and then ghosts them. It tends to be the more busy, experienced agents who do this. I doubt they have any intention of reading fulls unless nudged with an offer. If the property seems hot enough, they then have a reasonable chance of winning the client because of their name and rep. In effect, they use newer agents as first readers. I'm not nuts about this, but I get it. It's a way of managing a full client list and full inbox while still giving yourself a chance at the occasional new client.

Working on a new project I'm querying soon and am more excited about that project now. Responded with very kind "I was on the fence" email and invited to query next project. Seems that she might hold fulls in case of an offer from another agent.

Said it would take a while to read because she's very busy but to notify her if I had an offer. I received an offer a week later, but she couldn't read the full in the amount of time I gave her, so she stepped aside on the date of my deadline. She was very friendly and encouraging, but, yes, busy.
