  • 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.

Nat emailed me after reading a short story of mine in The Saturday Evening Post. His letter was an open-ended request to send a partial. If you read through his website and the interview in Poets & Writers, you can see that he seems to get most of his clients this way, with him making the first move, so perhaps he's not the best agent to cold query. I'm going to send him a partial, though I too have run into the problem of already having some fulls and partials out there. I've simply explained that in the letter and said I will wait to hear from him. Not sure how that will land, but we'll see. Doesn't hurt to try.

As to the comments about "not salable" being rude, I disagree. An agent's job is to SELL your manuscript. If he doesn't think he can, he does you no favors by stringing you along. Not salable doesn't mean something is not well-written and even engaging. It's completely determined by the market, which is determined partially by publishers and partially by readers' wallets. I don't think he means offense. He's simply direct. And that is doing you a favor. If we wish to publish and sell books, we must write something that will sell. If you're not interested in learning from someone who has been in the industry for over fifty years, then perhaps self-pubbing is the road to take. As for me, whether or not he decides my book is salable, I will greedily devour any and all comments he has on it. Criticism from agents is gold for those looking to publish someday.

Is there a chance of getting Kirsten Carleton added to Query Tracker? She's been with the agency for a few years, I believe.
