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.

9/7/15: I was selected for #PitchWars, so I requested that Beth hold off on reading my MS until I finished the revision round with my PW mentor. She agreed and requested that I send along the revised MS when it's ready.
11/5/15: Sent revised #PitchWars ms (confirmed receipt on 11/6/15)

She requested a different full MS from me last year and replied with a personalized rejection and a request to see future work. She also recently signed one of my beta readers/writing buddies, and she says good things about working with Beth.
