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.

Received automated response, indicating that they probably won't consider my manuscript, due to amateur status. However, this was not disclosed on their website.

"We have been receiving an over-abundance of queries each week. As you must appreciate, the list of new material that we can take on is necessarily short. Therefore, for the time being, we will rarely be reviewing any fiction material from unpublished authors. We apologize for this necessity, but there are only so many hours in the week and we feel we must devote our energies to existing clients and published authors ("published" means published by a commercial trade house or a very successful self-published eBook author)."

She (it was his associate agent) liked the characters and loved the idea. The writing wasn't as 'polished' (her quotes) as she would have liked and she wasn't satisfied with the ending. She said she thought another, bigger agency would probably take me on and help me turn it into a bestseller, but that they were too small to have the time to do that. She also asked me to make sure that when that happens, I don't let them change the characters too much.

Sorry Shaunta. What did they say for the personalized R?
