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".

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

Cupiscent--I tweeted Amy 9/14 about that and she said she responds to all queries, but in rounds. She'll probably get to yours soon :)

Her response time for queries is listed as "up to eight weeks," and it's been a little more than seven for you. Even if she's responded to others around the same time period, you're still within that window. If she hasn't responded by end of next week, then maybe consider nudging (good rule of thumb: include your original query below, so she doesn't have to hunt for it). Personally, I'd give it an extra week or two before nudging, but that may be just me.

Hope that helps, and good luck!

EQ: 3rd August - epic fantasy

Now I'm a bit dithery. Looking at the timeline, Ms Boggs more or less swept through her query box a couple of weeks ago, but there are a few unrespondeds scattered throughout - like me. I got an autoresponse when I queried, so that makes me think I probably didn't fall into the spamtrap, but now I'm not sure what to do. The default, obviously, is "wait patiently" (which is probably what I'll do, at least for another couple of weeks or until the timeline indicates further activity and none for me) but if I somehow have fallen through the cracks perhaps I should nudge or resend. (There are so many wonderful fantasy-representing ladies at DMLA I'd also like to query if my work is not to Amy's taste.)

Thoughts? Suggestions? Commiserations? :)
