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.

So far all communication has basically been form emails. I'm excited to be upgraded to a full though! Always a nice feeling, no matter what happens.

I hope this was the right thing to do, but I just lifted my teaser paragraph out of my usual query letter.

Question about Ms. Biagi's submission process: The online form asks you to paste a summary of your work. Is this the teaser summary found in your query (without the ending) or the synopsis (with the ending)? I assumed it was the former, but the character limit seemed quite large for that. Could I get feedback from those of you who have submitted? Thanks!

8/21: Received a more or less form rejection this afternoon.
Update: I sent Laura an email last week letting her know I got into Pitch Wars (she is signed up for the agent round) and if she wanted to see revised material to let me know/keep an eye out for me in November. She responded the next day and was extremely nice and said she'd look out for the revised MS.

EQ: 2/25
PR: 9/1 (She requested an exclusive. I don't ever grant exclusives. Not advantageous for authors, only for agents.)
I let her know on 9/3 that I've shelved that book and an getting ready to query a new project.

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. :(

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.

I sent the query... but it's been 4 months and I haven't heard back.

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!
