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

To query, email Amy with query, first five pages, and 1-2 page synopsis pasted into the body of the email.

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

Consider that no news may be good news. Many agents have a maybe or look again pile and your submission may be in it (or an intern passed it onto the agent themselves). Immediate rejections could be a sign of something really wrong whereas taking some extra time may mean the agent is pausing to consider. Hope that makes the waiting a little easier for you :)

Totally agree it's not that long (and yes, followed sub guidelines), just curious since so many have heard after me. Wondering if anyone is in the same boat.

Karambelas, a month isn't that long. I'd check to see if you 100% followed submission guidelines. If so, I'd wait. As said, a month isn't that long. With another agent, I saw people who'd queried two weeks after me with a reply, and I hadn't--but mine still came in yesterday.

So I queried on 10/5 and haven't heard anything but it looks like most people have heard back who queried after me... should I re-query her? Anyone still waiting?

16 days. "Dear Author..." Seriously? How much effort would it take to at least put my name on the rejection? I mean, it's right there at the top of the email.
