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".

Dear Author:



The Doe Coover Agency thanks you very much for your recent submission. We apologize that the volume of submissions necessitates our replying in a form letter. And while we appreciate your thinking of the agency, we’re afraid that the project you propose does not seem right for our list. Another agency may well feel differently, of course, and we certainly want to wish you the best of luck with your work. Thank you again for the chance to consider your book.

The genres tab says they accept memoirs...but the website does not.

That was a form letter, by the way. I got the same one.

Probably an assistant or this time of year, possibly an intern.

I got a rejection, but it was from someone named Frances Kennedy. Hmm, I wonder if Doe Coover doesn't answer her e-mails anymore, or she simply asked a co-worker to formulate the response to me.

Agents often get upwards of 300 queries a week, even the smaller ones. That's why some keep low profiles and don't even have webpages. Any response is a good thing at this point.

I think this qualifies as a form letter:

While I appreciate a fast response and understand form letters as a necessary evil. I really wonder how, if these are truly small one or two people operations and they are so overwhelmed by submissions and they want you to send pages as part of the query, are they really reading what you're sending?
