About QueryTracker

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

  • Query Response Times

  • Preferred Manuscript Lengths

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".

Form rejection from Ms. Hochman saying that she had reviewed my query, but due to overwhelming commitments for present clients she is taking little if any new material.

Gotta admit, this one hurts. If I had a dream agent, she's it. I'll take solace in the fact that her rejection said nothing about my work not being a good fit, only that she is too busy.

just emailed a query, though it said "preferred" snail. I'm just so tired of wasting paper w snail mail.

however, Gail is out on Jury duty for two weeks-- got a auto-reply.

1/21 Form rejection from Bill Contardi. He said Gail Hochman was too busy with editorial work so he's picking up her queries since he is building his client list.

At least it was a fast turn around.

Aww, thanks Sagesoul. We all support each other here. I'm hoping for my lucky break to happen this mid to late fall.
