How it works?

Writers provide data about their query experiences with literary agents.

That data is then compiled into reports showing details about each agent's query history, allowing writers to reach the literary agent that is right for their book.

Why is QueryTracker Free?

QueryTracker is free because it is our goal to collect as much data as possible about query letter results.

To do that, we need as many members as possible to submit their data, and the best way to do that is to make it free.

So please, join us in building the web's largest collection of query data.

Agency has changed submission format from the email listed to an online form.
The form asks for a short description of the author, as well as a very short synopsis of the book at 150 words max, and the first 50 pages.

8154kj: Most agents are swamped. Nature of the biz. That you have at least two agents who thought enough of your book to request fulls and then sent revision suggestions means you're close. The take-away you have is you got some helpful advice which bettered your book. That is valuable in itself. With the revisions you are that much further ahead. It may be they will eventually get back to you but you've beaten their doors like a rented mule and the sucker just sat there. Moving on is exactly the right thing to do. Persistence is key. As J.A. Konrath likes to say: there's a word for a writer who never gives up: published. 'Nuf said.

Hey, Tarzan, since you asked (and thanks for your advice): The kind of rewrites they asked for made sense to me. The first rewrite improved the novel's pacing a great deal and so I liked it. So that's the one I think I'll be sending out now. Yes, I felt I should give the rewrites a shot because I am desperate to get published, and the rewrites didn't go against my basic idea for the book or change the characters to any great extent. My shock was that several e-mails later (to Mr. Mason, for example) I got not even a polite note saying "no-thanks." In addition to Mr. Mason, the other agent was very encouraging and very welcoming about reading the rewrite. Then -- silence across several e-mails. My prior contact with both of them gave me no reason to believe they would drop the ball like that. Again, I think the agents get completely swamped, and very quickly move on. It's not nice, but it seems to be the new normal with a lot of businesses these days. And so--onward!

81549kj: Three versions? Two requested revisions? Plus your original? And not a peep on your revised books from the two agents? And now you're confused as to which one to send out? It's decision time, obviously: which of the three are YOU happiest with? And when you made the two revisions, did you make them based on agreeing with them or because you wanted representation so badly you were willing to make any changes regardless of your thoughts on their merit? It is not the norm to have full requests ignored. Some response in a reasonable time frame is the professional norm. Status query after a month on a full. A second one after three months. If they ignored an initial email status update, try sending the second update request by snail mail with a SASE. That may get their attention. If they still ignore getting back on a full then they aren't the agent of your dreams-- unless you're happy with being trapped in a nightmare. Move on, and query widely. Good luck. Your agent is out there.
