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

Email with the word “Query” and your book’s title in the subject line. Please include a brief description of your book in the body of the email, along with a short bio and, for fiction and memoir, the first five pages of the manuscript. Attachments will not be opened unless requested.

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

No response. Seeing that she is a fast responder, I sent a nudge at the three week mark. Still no response. Disappointing. Marking this a CNR.

Fast and polite...but still a rejection. I feel like it was slightly personalized, but I can't be sure.

"Thanks so much for contacting me about your book project, but I'm afraid I wouldn't be the best representative for it. Best of luck on your path to publication."

That's okay, my non-fiction concept and all my research is really kick-ass. Someone will be interested.
