Query Guidelines

I ask that authors email me queries and cut and paste the first 5 pages of their manuscript IN THE BODY OF THE EMAIL with every query (both fiction and nonfiction). If you do choose to send me a hard copy submission, you must include your email address in your letter as I will respond to queries exclusively via email from now on. Also, please be aware that I now have a "no response means no" policy for hard copy queries ONLY, so please do NOT include a SASE. As of now, I do still reply to all email queries. Finally, please do not send unsolicited email attachments or manuscripts, as I cannot open the former or return the latter. I reserve the right to delete any email containing unsolicited attachments unread. Thank you, and I look forward to reading your submission!

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

query: 4/28/22
re-sent: 6/17/22

I'm resending my query because her guidelines here on QT say she still replies to all emails and after 50 days, I have not gotten either the receipt or the reply. *shrugs* might as well try again! :)

Does the Fox Literary website say we're supposed to get an email receipt? I can't find that anywhere on their publishers marketplace page. So I didn't expect to get a receipt.
Also, is publisher's marketplace their only website? In my exhausted stupor, any link I type in to get to their website only takes me to PM. If I'm missing something, someone help? Thanks! haha

Thank you so much for your query. Unfortunately, however, this project doesn’t sound right for me. I encourage you to continue to submit elsewhere, and I wish you every success in your writing career. Thanks again for thinking of me.
Cordially,
Diana Fox

m_mastro3m, I didn't get an email receipt or a response to my December query which compounds that worry of whether or not she even got it in the first place.

And as far as I can tell, the PM page is the only page for their agency. It's a little frustrating that you have to dig around on social media, forums, podcast mentions, etc.to find out more about the agency and Diana in particular, but her track record speaks for itself. She's helped propel her authors to great heights and from what I've heard from current and former clients, she's a great agent to work with.

But count me among those who wished this agency had confirmation receipts or used querytracker just so we could know for our own sanity that our query didn't end up in the spam folder.

Good luck with your querying!

Tara725 I queried her last Tuesday and did not receive a confirmation email either.

Did anyone receive a confirmation email from her after querying? I queried on March 4th and did not, and she has since then rejected and requested from dozens of people, so I'm concerned she didn't receive. I nudged her over a week ago, with no response. It seems strange.

Shame. She wrote she wanted so many things I had to abundantly offer, but maybe is more commercial than she thinks she is. 12 day gap btw

I also got misgendered because the agent simply looked at my name and assumed despite clearly stating it in my query letter, so this agent didn't even read my query. Incredibly degrading and upsetting. For someone who represents so many LGBTQIA2S+ authors, that's incredibly discouraging.
