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".

Query Guidelines

Please send a query letter and ten sample pages, with the first and last name of the agent you are querying in the subject line.

Leave comments about your experiences with this literary agent, or read what other authors have to say.

Just query them to the address. That's all I know. Check out their AQ link.

How do you query these guys - do they request anything besides the Q letter? Cant find submission info on their website. Thanks.

3/6/13, I queried Brettne with Chain Reaction. Two weeks ago, I nudged her and got zip in return. So I'm closing it as NR and hope to hear from Katherine back on the same CR query. I'll be nudging her next week.
