@KT1525 this is from their website, "Do not query more than one agent at New Leaf Literary & Media." It might be new because I don't remember seeing it there when I queried back in May.

I don't see anything mentioned on their site. In this case, I usually defer to the idea you can query other agents. That's what I've been doing.

Anyone know if a pass from one is a pass from all?
(In this case, not even a formal rejection but simply no response after 8 weeks)

Thank you. I did know that but I appreciate you letting me know. :)

@casscutting I believe they have a ‘no response in 8 weeks is a no’ policy. They don’t send rejection emails

EQ sent on 9/1 but I did not receive an auto response. The email is correct and the subject line reads: Query, Joanna Volpe, YA ... should I send again?

Update: I reached out to New Leaf's assistance email listed on their site and learned that my emails had gone straight to their spam folder for some reason. I used a general Gmail address. They were just as confused as I was, but passed my query along. I hope this is helpful for anyone else who queries but doesn't receive an auto response. You might want to reach out to them and ask about their spam folder!

@amroot every book I’ve queried at this agency got an auto reply right away - check spam but also here is how I formatted the subject line if that helps:

QUERY: Joanna Volpe Adult Rom Com

Good luck! I would resend if you didn’t get a reply just maybe with a line that explains you didn’t get the auto message and want to make sure it went through
