I have already been turned down by one reviewer and have sent out new invitations.  To facilitate this process, additional reviewer candidates would be appreciated.

It is under review.  One reviewer has agreed and I have gone through three people who declined to review the paper.  There is currently an invitation that was sent yesterday for which I have not received a response.  I will be happy to withdraw the paper if you would like.

I misunderstood your mail and I am happy to hear it is under review.  I hope some of the other suggested reviewers will agree to review.

Best regards, Jan

Dear xxx

It's been about a month since the last update on this manuscript.  Is there any news?

Dear xx

I wrote to you regarding an update on this manuscript two weeks ago but have not received a reply.

Do you think we will get a decision within a week?

If don't hear from you within a week please consider the paper retracted and then we'll try our luck somewhere else.

Best regards, Jan
