E-mailed agent for update. She e-mails back that PublisherA probably wants to look at novel pages and since there are none and they haven't made any noise since last week, that's probably a bad sign, but nothing definitive. She said she would try to hit up some smaller publishers more known to take on story collections to create a little spark, but that since we haven't heard from nine other major houses yet (been only two weeks and a day) that it is too soon to panic, and she will buzz these editors for a second time (after sending them the manuscript two weeks ago). So the count remains out of 11 submissions, one rejection (nice) so far and one curious as to if I have a novel, and nine no responses whatsoever. I'll keep you updated.
