I have a question on follow-up protocol:

I sent requested material to Lauren Ruth on January 17. Their submission guidelines states their response time goal is 12 weeks to respond to RM. It has been 15 weeks.

However, I queried her on September 19 and she responded on January 16. Their query goals are 8 weeks.

How long should I wait before nudging? Based on the query response time, it may take a while still. I nudged on the query on November 22, but she responded to my original submission.

Thoughts? Have any of you had a similar experience?
