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

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.

Phoo :( this is a disappointing one, as I think he's an awesome agent, and I was hoping he might pass it along to someone else at Writer's House if it wasn't for him... The rejection letter says he loved the humor and sense of adventure, but other than that was a form letter. I'm super disappointed as it seems like a lot of people who send him a full get some personalized feedback or reasons for the rejection, or a suggestion as to who else to sub to, etc...makes me worry that my ms. is a lost cause! *sigh*

I queried Steve in November 2012, but never received a reply. A year and a half later, would it be o.k. to re-query him on the same (revised) ms? I never knew whether he passed on the original or whether it fell through an electronic crack. Thanks for any thoughts/advice!

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.
