I know there are some general guidelines to how long it takes agents to get back to queries, partials, and fulls and also when it's appropriate to nudge -- but I'm wondering if there are any guidelines to responses to revisions sent after an R&R...?

What is the typical time frame that it takes an agent to respond to a revised manuscript? When is it appropriate to nudge?

Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

Give them at least as long as you would on the initial full read. Since you do have a bit of a relationship with the agent at this point a very polite and kindly worded nudge would probably not be poorly received, so long as they'd had a truly fair time to assess the material.

What Drachen said. You're basically handing the agent a new full request. The clock resets.

Thanks for the info, Drachen and Cyia!

I guess it's back to the great wait.
