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.

MissMary, I signed with Victoria Marini of Gelfman Schneider.

And yes, pickfordm, my road to getting an agent has been terribly long and bumpy. Though I've only been actively trying to get an agent for 6 years, I've been writing for over 20. I know it sounds cliché, but DON'T QUIT.

ljjackson0 -- I agree with MissMary! So happy you got an offer of rep, and so well-deserved.

Thanks also for sharing your backstory. It's a frustrating process, so it's good to know that even with a bunch of "no's" things still may work out in the end. :)

You deserve this then! So excited for you. Way to keep going despite the time it's taken and the rejection.

Thanks, MissMary. I will. Still waiting for a couple more agents to finish reading. All this comes after 6 years of querying and writing 3 manuscripts, one which was rewritten 6 six times. (200+ rejections)
