Online Form: No

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

Include a synopsis (1-2 pages) and the first five pages of your novel pasted into the body of the email; no attachments.

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

Ah, well. Better a quick and (relatively) painless ER than the languish of silence. Still have five queries out there. They'll keep my finger glued to the refresh button. Gotta love this process!

Congrats ImaanB! On 4/1/16, I've requeried Jennifer Jackson with Chain Reaction. Over the weekend, she passed--not a good fit. So I'll try Caitlin McDonald in May with Venom!

On 2/24/16, I've requeried Jennifer with Venom. Over the weekend, she gave me a pass--not a right fit. I'll try her this spring with Chain Reaction again.

Thanks for your query.

As to your material I'm afraid I will be passing -- I'm just not drawn
strongly enough to the concept of your story to feel that I'd be the
right agent for the project. I realize it is difficult to make an
assessment from a query; nevertheless please know that I give serious
attention to every letter, outline, and writing sample I receive.

Sorry I couldn't give you a more positive reply. Thanks for thinking
of me, though, and best of luck in your search for representation.
