JaeStories, thank you for the update! I see Jaida is no longer on the New Leaf website. I queried Jaida on 1/15 and have not heard back. I'd like to query Suzie Townsend, but am not sure if I should wait for an official notification from the agency. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Update 2/2, with a message from Janet Reid:
"Thanks for querying Jaida Temperly at New Leaf. Jaida is no longer working in publishing, so your query was directed to [Janet Reid].
If you would like to query another agent here at NLLM, I suggest you consider Jordan Hammesley."

@sarahhawley Suzie Townsend has said the same thing, it’s okay to query more than 1 agent at the same agency, so long as it’s not said otherwise in the agency sub rules. Pretty sure New Leaf is accepting of it.

I've seen contradicting info online about New Leaf's policy on authors submitting to a different agent if the first one passes. The website says "Do not query more than one agent at New Leaf Literary & Media, Inc." but Janet Reid has encouraged people to submit to a second agent: http://jetreidliterary.blogspot.com/2018/01/exceptions-to-dont-query-two-agents-at.html. Does anyone have experience querying two agents at New Leaf?

After Jaida requested a full (and passed) on my MS last year, I emailed her (8/24/17) to let her know I'd just finished a complete rewrite.

so is Jaida no longer taking Children's work from what I understand because her PM page says children's fiction. So she should update it. also on the new leaf website it says she takes MG and YA
