does anyone know what's going on with this agent? one of her colleagues at maass tweeted that she's open to queries, but her querymanager has been closed for days. I am quite eager to submit to her now that she's with a new agency!

Oneunkindless, I got the exact same. Wondered if this invite is for the same ms. or my next, which I'm preparing to start subbing in a bit. Her wording wasn't clear. ("I am moving agencies so for this reason I must decline. Please know that I welcome your submission at my new agency when it is announced.") But if for same, it indicates she hasn't had a chance to read requested fulls while at the agency she has just left. Let us see where and when Jolene lands and proceed if relevant

I received a rejection on a full, but with an invitation to resubmit once she finds a new agency.

She’s probably just clearing out her inbox.
