Hi all - I wasn't sure where to post this in the AQC forums, so I hope this is an okay place.
I have been trying to find representation for my MG novel since August 2017. So far I've submitted about 35 queries, had a few requests for partial, and a couple for the full manuscript. All have rejected me ultimately, save for one agent who requested the first 3 chapters in Oct 2017, then excitedly asked for the full in late Nov 2017.
Since submitting the full manuscript to her at the end of Nov 2017, I have not heard from her at all. What is the general time frame for a full manuscript submission to get some kind of response? I suppose it's possible she's passing on me, and the radio silence is my answer. But I'm also just curious if she's still considering my work, if she's gotten to it at all, or if she is officially passing on it.
Is it bad form to reach out to an agent who has requested the full but has not responded to the work in about 5 months? Or should I give her more time? Or just sit on my hands assume silence means pass?
Thank you all for any insight you may have! I don't want to step on an agent's toes, but I'm just sort of curious where this agent is at since she's my current last hope for representation (unless a future agent takes me on).
