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".

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

Yesterday I requeried Diana Finch with Chain Reaction and heard back from her today--not the best agent.

From her web site:

Fiction: The agency is closed to new fiction submissions - except for young adult novels - from September 23rd until further notice, while I give priority to conference submissions and a full slate of new client projects ready for submitting to editors. If you would like to submit a fiction query to me, please check back at the end of October.

A polite, kind reject. Much appreciated:

Dear John Pansini,

Thank you for the query. I'm sorry to report that I don't think that I'm the right agent for the work, due in part to my very full current schedule. I do appreciate having been offered the chance to consider your work.

I'm not sure on the nudging part, but my query went 46 days and ended in rejection if that helps carlisdm.

Does anybody know how long it's prudent to wait after a query to nudge this agent? I can't find that information on her guidelines.
