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.

Reading down this comment thread I see a dispute on Melissa's surname, but no clarification. Erin Harris, on her PM page, calls her colleague Melissa White, and on the Folio site, if you hover on Melissa's photo, she's Melissa White. So for anyone still in doubt, it's "Ms. White".

ER: 6/30/16 -- She sent a very nice note that she likes my voice and writing but my book is too close to something already on her list. Sad, but very encouraging.

The agency website says they reply to all queries and to follow up if you've not heard in the timeframe indicated by each individual agent; unfortunately, Ms. White says in her bio that she only replies if interested.
