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

QUERY - SUZIE in the subject line. In addition to your query, please include the first 5-10 pages (pasted into the body of the email - no attachments, please!). Don't worry about sending a synopsis - they're evil.

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

Just FYI for those of you submitting to Suzie. She does a great Ask an Agent thing on Fridays on You can ask a question anonymously throughout the week, and then on Fridays she usually posts answers between 12-2 eastern time. Someone has been asking great questions about her querying/full request review process, and I'm loving all the information she's giving out! The FAQ also includes her answers to lots of great common questions.
