About QueryTracker

Let QueryTracker tell you more about this literary agent. Including...

  • Query Response Times

  • Preferred Manuscript Lengths
  • The Best Time to Query

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.

Agents, please contact us to make any changes to your profile.

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".

Snail mail query sent 16/06/13, form letter received 18/07/13. She also advised that her list was full, and that she only takes on 1-2 clients per year, and also to send at least 3 chapters when making a submission to her, which I hadn't done as every literary agent has very specific submission guidelines, and there was no way of knowing what hers were. Would be handy to have submission guidelines for this company visible here - most others list them on their website.
