About QueryTracker

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.

Always verify agent's information before sending your query. Verify the agent's query preferences, contact information, genres of interest, and if the agent is still open to queries.


Although QueryTracker tries to stay current, it is not always easy. Never trust any single source for agent information (and yes, this includes QueryTracker).


Review the user comments for more information, and always follow exactly what it says on the agent's website.


And NEVER give money to an "agent".

Oops. Sorry--it was a different agent (Courtney Miller-Callahan) that tweeted her peeve. (Getting my MCs mixed up, apparently.) I've deleted my original post to avoid further confusion.

The peeve was quoting a line from the manuscript. Courtney tweeted it was pretentious and made her think that the author would be too in love with her words to want to revise if necessary. I'd already revised my query and cut out the quote by that point, so it wasn't that excruciatingly painful to hear.

Good luck, Crossley!

writeordie, if you feel you tighten and improve the mss in the end, it can't hurt to email the assistant and ask whether he/she is willing to take another look. good luck, whatever you decide!

Thank you, Drachen! Looking at my list of rejections, I've apparently committed a pet peeve with plenty of others!

Obviously whatever the peeve, you managed to avoid it Crossley.

Good luck with the full.
