Heard from a friend after I queried that she's not really taking on new clients besides referrals, so may be better to query someone else at the agency.

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.
