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

-Queries should include a 2-4 paragraph pitch -Paste the first 5 pages of your manuscript below your query/pitch.

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

I've had a FR out since April as well, but can't find the website instructions about no responses--do you know where they are tpolen? For some reason I thought she responds to everything.

Guess I'll close this one out - no response after 3 months and as per website instructions, I sent a couple of emails to check back, but no reply.

YA speculative.

Haven't had a response from her yet but since I know she responds to all queries and she's closed currently to catch up on her backlog, I'm still hopeful!

EQ 3/31
FR 4/1
6/2 Offer nudge (Leon Husock)
6/9 ER with a paragraph of feedback and advice.
Note: Mandy dislikes dialogue written in dialect.
She was fast and gave constructive criticism with praise so a pleasure to query.
On the same day, I accepted an offer from Sara Crowe. This is such a subjective business so don't give way to despair!

I'm one of Mandy's clients and she read my MS super fast (I had an offer in a couple days). However, I know she had a bunch of others to work on at the same time and I just happened to hit when she was looking for something like mine so she read it faster.

She's been super busy with client books and the class she's teaching, plus I think she tends to read based on her mood at that moment so she may request a MS and if she gets three that are the same genre, she may break them up with something else. She's AWESOMELY fast for an agent, though, and she makes a point of contacting everyone. It's very important to her! She will 100% respond to everyone.

Mandy *does* respond to all queries, though they do get responded to out of order. If you queried in April and are waiting for a response, you will hear back! Her oldest query right now is from 4/5. She's just swamped at the moment.

Hope that helps!
