louise00, I queried yesterday and I did receive an auto-confirm. So maybe you should re-send, saying that you didn't receive one the first time.

I still haven't received the auto-response email for confirmation of my query being received... Should I resend or is this a common thing? It's been a month since I sent in.

She rejected a query sent on 9/16. Does that mean every query sent before then has been passed over and authors are free to query another agent at the agency? she states that she only responds to queries she is interested in, so maybe she bothered to reject that one because it was a referral?

I really hate that they dont bother to reply to unsuccesful queries though ? like at least let us know(talking about 2 other agents from the agency, not suzie)
I also offered to submit some revisions, but ni response.

She asked for a partial from someone who made a query 6 days after I did, so I'm assuming it's a pass.

Does anyone have an update? When I queried her the email gave an 8 week response time.

@ruha_alford It means "at a time". Suzie Townsend has said that you can query another New Leaf agent the moment the four weeks is up on her instagram Q&As. Before requerying, I would still look over your query letter and first pages to see if they're the best they can be!

I'm about to close this query tomorrow CNR (YA Fantasy). The New Leaf website says "Do not query more than one agent at New Leaf Literary & Media, Inc."

Does anyone know if that means "at a time" or just don't try again at all?
