Query Guidelines

We try to respond to all queries received. We do not respond to queries that are not specifically addressed to an agent by name. We prefer straightforward query letters by email that get right to the point about what the project is and which show the author to be familiar with the marketplace. If you're submitting fiction please include the first few pages of the manuscript with the query. Please note that we do not represent young adult, romance, fantasy, or science fiction.

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

Many thanks for sharing this with me. You have an interesting story to tell and there's a lot to like about your approach. But in the end I'm afraid I didn't come away quite fully convinced this was something I think I'd be able to represent successfully. I'm sorry not to be more enthusiastic but thanks nonetheless for giving me a chance to review it and best of luck in finding it the right home.

Next-day rejection of commercial fiction / 80,000 words. Positive comments along with the usual, "sorry, not for me." Better than most!

Like most others, I received the same polite form letter Farley has been using for years. I applaud his efficiency and appreciate not having to wait and wonder.

I requeried Farley in 2017 and heard back from him today--interesting story, liked my approach, not convinced to take it on. I'll try him this spring with Chain Reaction. Congrats Sevenrain!
