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.

Thank you for your recent query to the Denise Shannon Literary Agency. Unfortunately, we do not feel your project is right for us, but we wish you the best of luck elsewhere.

Chose her because she represents Lydia Davis.

On 4/22/16, I've requeried Denise Shannon with Venom--today I've heard back from her--not a good fit. I'll try her with Chain Reaction next month.

Question: Has anyone been sending her any of the manuscript with the query? The submission guidelines seem to indicate she ONLY wants the query letter. Is that what others have been doing? Thanks!

YA thriller. This woman seems to have impeccable taste. I'm thinking this is a long shot.
