About QueryTracker

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

  • Query Response Times
  • Genres of Interest
  • Preferred Manuscript Lengths
  • The Best Time to Query
  • And More
And best of all, it's FREE.

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".

Haven't heard anything. Seems like some people get very fast responses and some have to wait a very long time. Hoping no news is good news at this point, but this process is painful.

He has too many novels involving my genre and doesn't want to take on anymore.

Well, I just received an email from him. He rejected me. Below is the email. He did say I'm welcome to query another agent at the agency. Which agent do y'all think I should query? Don't say Jodi Reamer because I've queried her numerous times and always gotten form rejections. lol!

"Thank you for your email. I’m so glad to hear that you enjoyed DEEP BLUE and I will be sure to pass your praise on to Jennifer.

The sample below is very well written and this idea has a lot of potential. However, I have a couple of other urban fantasy projects I’m working on and I’d rather not add another, so it’s best for me to step aside. You’re welcome to query another agent at Writers House.

Thanks again for the opportunity to consider your work and for your nice letter. I wish you the very best moving forward.

Kind regards,

Steven Malk

I say hold tight for a while longer, Dryad. He is a responder, and it's a bit too soon to re-query. You can follow his twitter - it looks like last month was really busy. Some of his clients received awards and such.
