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.

So this is a long query story:

EQ: 6/11/15
Partial Request 9/28 (100 pgs) - stuck in spam filter
FR: 10/23/15
Phone call to discuss minor revision: 2/19/15
Sent revision: 3/13/16
Offer of Rep: 3/25/16 -- Accepted! Thrilled!

Note: I had other offers during that revision period, but those agents, while lovely, didn't have quite the same vision for the story. Caryn is awesome, and a real pleasure to work with. When they say it's important to find someone who "gets" and loves your work, they're right!

Good luck, all! I queried a previous ms 4 years ago and trunked it. Just keep moving and writing!

Short & polite form rejection, but at least she plugged my name and book title into it, so points for that.

I'm thinking I got spam filtered somehow--I'm 6 weeks out on a query and others have gotten answered.

UPDATE: Looks like that's what happened.

Partial Request 9/28 (100 pgs)
FR: 10/23

Taking a long, slow breath.
