FR 8/31/16 Assistant Mike Kelly was very pleasant. He confirmed receipt 9/8/16.
ER 10/13. Joanna said it was intriguing but she didn't connect as much as she needed to.

@gowiththeflow, @chicklegirl: Thank you! I did see on the New Leaf Literary Website that their agents only reply if interested, but my hope was kindled somewhat with seeing occasional rejections. (I'd much rather be rejected outright than have no reply.) Thanks and good luck, guys!

tiff, Joanna only replies if interested. I can see from the data explorer that she very occasionally sends rejections, but otherwise she only replies to request (which is to say, rarely). Good luck!

tiff880515, I'd say sometimes she replies--but not always. I'm seeing several CNRs in the comments below, including the one I (didn't) receive. Hope that helps.

Question: on her website at New Leaf Literary, it's stated that the agency doesn't reply if uninterested. But it seems that Joanna DOES reply?!

Does anyone know if she's caught up with her October queries? That way I can cross her off my list.
