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.

This is just a guess and I may very well be wrong, but from the low number of responses on QueryTracker (approx 350 out of over 1.9k sent), I'd say Mr. Galen may only send a rejection if he's "on the fence" about requesting more on your project. His rejections seem to be personalized by project, too -- perhaps he essentially has a "maybe" pile.

My two cents. :)

I fear that. I like the ones that have auto reply set up.

My fear is that the queries never made to the inbox

I was wondering the same as well.

It's interesting to me that some people receive rejection letters from Mr. Galen and others are just CNR. Does anyone have any ideas on why he responds in this manner?
