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.

"Dear writer" form letter. I had forgotten I even wrote her and the book has since been rewritten in some pretty major ways.

Very kind rejection saying she liked my writing but the book wasn't high concept enough.

Honestly, I find her form rejection rude... "Dear writer," and "this isn't--for whatever reason--right for me" rubs me the wrong way. (Although I'd closed this out more than a month ago, so it doesn't actually hurt...)
