    Susanna Lea Associates

    Hi, just wondering if anyone has had any experience with this agency? I got a request for a full about two months after my query, saying they'd love to see more. I nudged four months later and the reader said they hadn't started reading it yet. Now it's been about nine months and I'm wondering whether I should just give up or whether they're just that slow.

    There's no info on QueryTracker about them, which doesn't mean anything in itself, but does mean that you can't easily compare submission reports with other queriers.

    On their submission page, they say they can't guarantee a response. While the implication is that they are talking only about queries, they could just as easily be referring to full requests as well.

    But I also might just suspect that they are, indeed, that slow. If I were you, I'd send them a status query once more and then just forget about them. Maybe they'll get back to you and maybe they won't, but there's no point worrying.

    Feuilleton, have you heard anything since you posted? They've had my full since the end of July. I plan to nudge next week after the post-holiday craziness has past.
