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.

Request for full ms from Pitch Madness
Query and full ms sent on 3/13/16
3/15/16: confirmation of receipt and a note saying I could check in at any time. She seems super nice, and I really appreciate knowing I could check in. I haven't yet since it's a full ms, and I know those can take months.

It's been 4 months with no response after initial query. I'm closing the status figuring it's a NR reply. Onto the next one.

@janflora: It took her a long time to respond to my initial query, but then she requested a partial and, not long after, a full. Don't despair! Here's my timeline, if it helps:
Form query: 5/9/15
PR: 11/12/15
FR: 11/30/15 (full sent with info about new project, which she also requested when it was done)
New project sent 1/18/16

Now awaiting the response!

Jan, you can send her a nudge via email and not the form. She rejected me three years ago. It's been only three months so give her a follow-up.

It seems longer than her usual turn-around. I was wondering if she generally does not respond? Someone suggested a nudge but I don't want to fill out the whole form again.
