After I queried Ms. Ross, she requested to read my full manuscript. I enthusiastically sent it to her the same day. This was over a year ago, and she never got back to me despite a polite follow-up after five months. Sadly, she seems to be one of those agents who wastes authors' time by requesting fulls and rarely giving those authors the courtesy of a simple reply. This was my experience, and it reflects the comments here. It would not be difficult or time-consuming for Ms. Ross to send a short e-mail to decline the manuscript so that I and other authors could cross her off our lists and query another agent at her agency.

@writer3: Sorry to hear that you've had the same experience with this agent. It's unfortunate that agents expect professionalism from us, but they don't always return the respect. Requesting full manuscripts and then ghosting us is a disturbing trend. I expected more from this agent. Very disappointing.

@jessica Same experience. Had a full request and there's been only silence since, regardless of nudging. Not even an ack to let me know if she still wants to read it or if it's a form rejection. Meanwhile she's blocking me from querying other agents at her agency.
