Online Form: No

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".

Query Guidelines

We prefer to receive submissions by email with sample pages attached in .doc or .docx format. Please do not send .pdf files. Nonfiction submissions should include a query letter, a proposal, and a sample chapter. Fiction submissions should include a query letter, a synopsis, and either sample pages or a full manuscript.

Leave comments about your experiences with this literary agent, or read what other authors have to say.

All correspondence was with Trena's assistant, Lillian Klein. I had asked if she would consider an R&R, but got no response.

Congrats Rumhoney! I've requeried her today with Chain Reaction. Keep us posted!

12/2/15: On 10/30/15, I've requeried Trena Keating with Chain Reaction--heard back today with a nice R. She admired much about my writing, but wasn't passionate enough to represent it. So I'll try her with Venom's requery next year.

3/3/16: On 2/3/16, I've requeried Trena with Venom and nudged her today. She passed--strong writing, interesting story, didn't have passion to take it on. So I'll try Jenny next month with better luck.
