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.

I met her in person at a writers' conference. She was sincerely interested in my nonfiction project, and had praise for my writing and book concept, but the issue of "platform" (or rather the lack of it) was the sticking point. I asked what an ideal platform for a NON-fiction writer would look like to her, and she said either (a) a nationally known speaker, or (b) someone with 1000s of blog/social media followers. She added that I could probably sell to a small publisher right now, but she thought my book was worthy of a larger publisher IF I could expand my platform. She was kind and cordial, but I'm really hating the "P-word" ("platform") of late.

On 10/3, I sent Alice a query for Chain Reaction via online form. Today it came back with the same old rejection. They declined, since it's not something they can sell well.

12/11/12, I sent a query to Alice Crider. Today I've heard back from Jason Kennedy on my nudge. He apologized for the delay. He said it wasn't for them. Oh well. I'll try CR next month.

It's working now, WhatAWriter. Maybe it was a temporary glitch with their site.
