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.

Just tweeted that he's closing to queries on 2/8 to catch up on all the past queries! Hope that means some of the CNRs here will still get a reply.

Rewbooks, same thing here. Originally queried 11/23 and resent this week since I know their agency's policy is to respond. Maybe the holidays add some time to the typical turnaround? Best of luck!
