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

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.

Dear Mandy,
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

Kristen,

Honestly, I never intended it to be that long. It was supposed to be a novella, kind of a lead up to trying a full length novel. By the time I finished the first act, it was already 200 pages. Lol. So I just went with it and wrote until it was finished. I know being the exception to the rule is rare, but the amount of work that went into this, the edits, the beta readers, etc, makes me less nervous about pitching it.

Bill, well good luck to you. It's awfully risky to pitch that high, unless its fantasy or sci fi. I've been told to cut my word count from contests since it was too high for my genre as thrillers.

Congrats with the full request, Bill! Fingers crossed for you.

Congrats Bill! Don't let anyone tell you it's too long--sure all debuts would ideally be below 100k, but there are always exceptions and Diana obviously saw something in your story :) Fingers crossed for you!

Dark fantasy. And trust me, I'm well aware of the challenges in selling it. I've pitched that it could be effectively split as a duology, or even a trilogy of novellas, though I did write it as a stand alone. The first draft was actually over 200k, so it's been considerably cut as hard as that is to believe. And, too long or not, Diana fox asked to see the whole thing so there must be something there that clicked for her despite how bloated it is. We'll see what happens.

Bill, that's too long for a debut novel. What genre is it?

@americantypo -- just to give you an idea of response time, I submitted my full to her on 2/18 and haven't heard back yet. Good luck!

Queried on 4/13, received a request for the full manuscript on 4/21. I'm not sure what her turnaround is with reading full manuscripts, especially one as long as mine (150k), so I'm tempering any excitement with the reality that it'll probably be awhile before I hear anything, or that I might not hear back at all if its a pass. Will let everyone know what happens.
