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.

Doodles, I'd guess he's going out of order.

Anyone hear back on mid-October queries? Just wondering if mine got lost or if he's going out of order.

Seems like he's been really on top of queries since re-opening. Queried today, response within a few hours saying he has a client whose work is too similar but to please consider him for future work. :)

varsnder, I think you may be right. He's had my PARTIAL now for about 10 months. That's only 3 chapters. He requested it in a contest and despite numerous nudges and his responses that he'd read it soon, I've had crickets. He sounds like a great guy; however, I have read several warnings around the internet that he is notoriously slow/forever backlogged. I completely understand that clients take precedence and always will. But I think prompt responses (in 6 months or less) to all requests would be some kind of target to work towards.
