Very excited for this agent, as one of her clients (Leigh Bardugo) is my favorite author.

@noldorian, she hasn't requested from anyone on QT since January if I recall correctly, so I don't expect any of them are still on here to give you info, I would wait 5 weeks anyway

The agency says that 1 mo w/ no response is a pass, but Querytracker indicates that her average favorable response time is about 40 days. Can anyone speak to getting good news past the “deadline” for this agency?

@JaeStories Suzie Townsend has said a couple of times during her Ask an Agent sessions on Instagram recently that if she sends you a rejection it's OK to try someone else at New Leaf.

@MeganAScott, where does it say it's okay to query others at New Leaf? I only see "Do not query more than one agent at New Leaf Literary & Media, Inc." on the submissions page.

@MaamthisisaWendys, they sometimes do, but they say it's totally fine if one passes (or it's been long enough) to send to someone else in the office :)
