Does anyone know if I can query her after querying Joanna Volpe? The New Leaf website says, "Do not query more than one agent at New Leaf Literary & Media, Inc." Does that mean at a time or total?

Send Query + five pages. No response if not interested.

From her tumblr:
"Query Status: I've read all queries submitted on or before 11:00 pm on January 28th!
If you queried me and did not get a request, don't lose hope! It only takes one "yes" in publishing."

Notified of offer of rep on 1/4/18. It turns out she'd read my ms. over the holidays and loved it a lot, but didn't think she was the right agent. She did refer me to a colleague, but the colleague wasn't interested. So, a friendly step aside.

Full Request 11/07/17 Sent same day. She seemed very excited and so was very promising
Email Rejection 29/12/17 Pretty bummed as she said she loved it, she just wasn't confident she could sell it. I would have appreciated a referral or recommendation although I understand they can be very busy.

The rejections are stacking up now.
