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.

If you're not on Twitter, get on Twitter and search "New Leaf" to see what's happening. The most telling stories are those from authors who were dropped one, two, even three years ago, in addition to the ones dumped on Friday with a form email. According to them, this agency has a practice of just dumping clients. Clients with book deals even! You need your agent more than ever AFTER the book deal: to help liaise with the publisher on book covers, edits, everything! To try and get a new agent in the middle of that? It's a disaster.

Even the agent who left Friday (and all of her clients were dumped by the agency), Jordan Hamessley, has a history of no response to emails and unprofessional behavior with clients. This twitter thread is a little disjointed but gets the point across (and the author has a new agent and book deal, on the same book that Jordan and Suzie mishandled). https://twitter.com/CassNwrites/status/1657749442366410752?s=20
