Given the way this agency dropped a bunch of clients a few weeks ago, I'm almost relieved to not hear back from this agent.

Full request on 5/11 following an offer of representation (sent email on 5/10). This all happened 3 days before the New Leaf saga. Sent a withdraw email on 5/13 due to recent events. Querying writers– Do your research before querying this agency. They have a history of mass dropping their clients out of the blue.

Warning: New Leaf regularly mass drops clients with no warning. It's happened multiple times in 2023 and in multiple years prior. If you are not a well established author with an incredible sales record, reconsider querying them.

Auto email reply said to consider it a pass if no reply after 8 weeks. So I'm closing this as a "no" after two months. Good luck everyone!
