Accepts Queries Via...

Snail-Mail: No

E-Mail: No

Online Form: Yes

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.

Agency has changed submission format from the email listed to an online form.
The form asks for a short description of the author, as well as a very short synopsis of the book at 150 words max, and the first 50 pages.

8154kj: Most agents are swamped. Nature of the biz. That you have at least two agents who thought enough of your book to request fulls and then sent revision suggestions means you're close. The take-away you have is you got some helpful advice which bettered your book. That is valuable in itself. With the revisions you are that much further ahead. It may be they will eventually get back to you but you've beaten their doors like a rented mule and the sucker just sat there. Moving on is exactly the right thing to do. Persistence is key. As J.A. Konrath likes to say: there's a word for a writer who never gives up: published. 'Nuf said.

Hey, Tarzan, since you asked (and thanks for your advice): The kind of rewrites they asked for made sense to me. The first rewrite improved the novel's pacing a great deal and so I liked it. So that's the one I think I'll be sending out now. Yes, I felt I should give the rewrites a shot because I am desperate to get published, and the rewrites didn't go against my basic idea for the book or change the characters to any great extent. My shock was that several e-mails later (to Mr. Mason, for example) I got not even a polite note saying "no-thanks." In addition to Mr. Mason, the other agent was very encouraging and very welcoming about reading the rewrite. Then -- silence across several e-mails. My prior contact with both of them gave me no reason to believe they would drop the ball like that. Again, I think the agents get completely swamped, and very quickly move on. It's not nice, but it seems to be the new normal with a lot of businesses these days. And so--onward!
