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

The word “Query” must be in the subject line, along with the agent’s name, (example – Subject: Query, Suzie Townsend. YA) Please also include the category (ie, PB, chapter book, MG, YA, adult fiction, adult nonfiction, etc.) You may also include up to five double-spaced sample pages pasted into the body of the email. No attachments, please.

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

EQ on 10/29 for YA
Marking CNR because the auto response said to assume it's a pass after a month. Would have loved to have worked with her!

Requested full through contest, sent query and full 11/9.
Received email 11/9 that she received my MS. She said it might be up to 60 days for a response and to nudge if I haven't heard back after those 60 days. Very nice!

10/5 - liked my pitch during DVPit on Twitter for query & sample.
10/6 - EQ w/sample
10/8 - Full Request
10/29 - Received an e-mail from the agency to send to Suzie's assistant (which I was supposed to do in the first place but got nervous and hit reply without changing the e-mail address! I'm just grateful they sent me a follow-up).

@CassandraFear No worries. She does say 2 weeks for New Leaf but to give the agents 6-8.

8/29/16: Automated query receipt confirmation email
CNR: 10/28/16 Per their automated response, no response within a month is a pass

@DebHawkins Perhaps, but since there have been requests after me I just assumed. Plus for some reason I thought it said two weeks. My mistake.

@CassandraFear, 2 weeks seems really short to count it CNR. Her Q&A says give to agents up to 8 weeks.
