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.

To add to @AliciaIsWriting's update that Brooks is closed to queries to catch up that includes requested material, not just queries (per twitter).

Dear Writer54321,

I totally agree with your assessment. You deserve better.

Queried back in November. Several nudges (per website rules). No response to anything in eight months. I used to think he was my dream agent, but I'm going to CNR. I'm not sure I'd want an agent who seems to have so much trouble keeping on top of things.
