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".

Query Guidelines

Attach the first 50 pages of your project for her review. Please include “lbpquery” in the subject line of your email.

Leave comments about your experiences with this literary agent, or read what other authors have to say.

Utterly generic rejection of no value, but at least she got back to me, which seems to have been a problem in the past...
