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

Please include the word "query" and your book title in the subject line.

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

her auto-response had said if she did not respond within 10 days, to take it as she was not interested. Darn.
