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.

On 3/3, I queried her. Two weeks ago, I nudged her. No dice. It's closed/no response.

Thanks, professor! I'm plugging away. Query, query, query...

This is an example of a really good response, even though it is a pass. Tells you she liked it but is a pass because she is tired of the topic, not because of the writing. Likes the title and voice, but can't muster the enthusiasm. Good stuff. Keep plugging away - sounds like you are most certainly on the right track.
