I know some agents take even longer than six months. I wouldn't even worry about it, except that I have this new manuscript now and would love to query LaPolla with it.

Thanks for your input!
JoyMC, I think you are giving Ms Knowlton too much reverence here to be honest. Six months is more than enough time to read requested material. I would query Ms LaPolla anyway - what have you got to lose? You aren't playing them off against one another.

Look after your own interests first. If you have a new ms that you think would be a great fit then GO FOR IT!
