An agent has had my full for three months (the point that she recommends nudging). I sent an email to her last week, not realizing it was a holiday week.

When you nudge, how long do you wait for a response before nudging again?

And what subject line do you use in your email? Maybe "submission follow-up for [Your Book Title Here]"?

I'd give it two weeks before a second nudge (due to the holiday etc) and the subject line would be "FOLLOW UP:" followed by the original subject line.

Thanks. I used the specific subject line she requested on her site (I can't remember it now), so that shouldn't be an issue. But I will wait another week and follow up.

This is what Nathan Bransford has to say about it: https://blog.nathanbransford.com/2018/04/when-to-follow-up-with-a-literary-agent Going by his advice, wait a month before following up again.
