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.

Congrats J Taylor. On 9/18/15, I've re-queried Beth with Chain Reaction for #MSWL. I've heard back from her--she passed, still didn't click, but glad to have the chance to reconsider. I'll try Victoria Lowes in October for Venom.

Beth was absolutely lovely on the phone and anyone would be lucky to work with her. In the end, I accepted an offer from Melissa Sarver White at Folio.
