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.

Nudge (Dystel's website says to check in after 2 months): 7/14/15
Nudged again (this time to Ms. Stout's email address): 7/24/15
ER: 15 minutes later, 7/24/15

Hard not to think I shouldn't have nudged. But their own website says to do so. Curt, perfunctory form rejection.

You’re a talented writer and this is a compelling storyline, but I will step aside in favor of your more enthusiastic interest. I do wish you all the best here and congratulations!
