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.

Thanks for all the encouraging words. I needed them (and a drink). It helps to have others in the trenches. I'm cheering you all on too!

And, kind personal rejection. :(

Jencarpy,

I've never received an auto-response confirmation from this agency using their form query process. I'm not quite sure whether they have an auto-reply or not. I do know however that they don't always send an ER. CNRs are much more common with this agency, unless you participate in some Pitmad or Twitter event or some sort.

I queried through the form on Jun 9th and haven't heard anything back.
I also never received a confirmation that it was received? Does that usually come through? Wondering if maybe there was something not done properly....I haven't received a rejection or a confirmation that it was received.

Indy18: hang in there. This happened to me with another agent also. It was devastating at the time and I went into a pretty deep slump, but I tried to keep the fact that I now had a better manuscript to send out foremost in my mind. Your perfect match may be just a few queries away.

Wow, Indy, that's really tough. I went through a similar thing - an agent gave me notes for revision, and I followed them and thought I did really well and resubmitted months later, and then she rejected me again. It's so hard when you're waiting and hoping for that long!

the long, but hopefully still open road

Original EQ of Lit. Fiction to Jennifer Weltz: 7/31/15
Referral/Forward to LB on 8/5/5
Sent FR on 8/7/15
R on 8/18 with request for revision or future work, really kind note for revision sent on 8/20/15
Revision sent on 2/16/16

Update:
Check-in early May, replied that she's still reading (so nice when agents reply, I always feel worried about checking in).

And Personalized Rejection. Compliments, invitation to submit future work. Very, very kind, but I'm absolutely discouraged.

The average shows 55 days, but looking through the recent data, it looks like the most recent full requests were within just a day or two.

@Odvillainy, how did you send the sample pages? Did you send it through the submission form on the website?
