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.

11/11 = personal rejection via email with positive tone. Read my query, saw some merit, thought about it, but decided against. A nice person in addition to being a complete pro.

He was very nice and responded quickly.
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. Biography - History nonfiction

Form rejection: Many thanks for writing. 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.
