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".

@ Kidit3: That's a form rejection from her. I got the same email in October 2015.

I can't tell if it's form or personalized, but it's the nicest rejection yet. "Thank you so much for sharing your book with me, I truly appreciate your interest. I've had a chance to review and consider your work and can see how much you've invested in this. Unfortunately, I don't think I'm the right agent for this particular project, so I must pass. But I send this with gratitude and all good wishes for the future."

To be honest I've already trunked this ms., but no response on an enthusiastic full request still bums me out.

She recently tweeted a MSWL tweet that describes my full, which she requested in early November. She's only had it for about a month and a half, and I'm halfway tempted to tweet her and say she's just described my MS. But that seems a bit pushy. Agh. :)
