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

Include first 5 pages with your query.

jgodot- Her personal instructions didn't say to send a synopsis -- "If you would like to contact me about representation, please send a query letter and the first five pages of your manuscript included in the body of an email to:" So I think you're ok!

Thanks, katieob. I actually met with her last year at a conference where she asked to see the full manuscript. Then my hard drive died and I had to rewrite part of the book, which is why there was such a lag time.

ER: 6/29/16 with feedback. She seems like a wonderful agent. Kind and considerate. Unfortunately she wasn't able to connect with the MC but I'm left feeling hopeful about continuing my search for the right agent.

RQ 6/24/16 #SFFpit
ER 6/28/16

Same form rejection as below.

Given the tweet that she liked in #SFFpit, I think she might have been expecting something different that what she got. The pitch focused on a small aspect of the story instead of the overall plot. Live and learn.
