I'm going to CNR this. Even though it's only been six days, this agent doesn't have much of a reputation for responding. If I hear something, great, I'll change it then. Not going to fret over the long shots.

I didn't know there was a QT tracking system. I just emailed him at his email address. Did it on a Sunday. Before noon on Monday, he had emailed back but seemed a standardized rejection:

Thank you very much for your recent email.

Unfortunately, due to commitments to current clients, I can’t offer to consider your work.

I do appreciate your interest in my agency, though, and wish you the best of luck.

@Edunmo, did you enter this query into the QT tracking system? I don't see your info.
And this agent hasn't even responded to other your rejection is a surprise.

@ChickLitChick - that thar's funny!

I used to shy away from querying agents without an elaborate website, but then I thought, 'why cross them off my list? I can Google their bio.'
And their job (for us at least) is to pitch our book to a publisher, which means all they need is a phone and an email address. Hah. So I sent Mr. Axelrod my query.

Sometimes I want to offer agents a trade. I'll re-design their website, and they can represent my book. This is one of those times. No info on website.
