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.

What a great story, AlwaysFairWeather. It's also heartening to read about your success as I (and others) sludge through this process. Thanks so much for sharing -- and congratulations on your representation and the sale! If you share the name of the book, I'll keep my eyes open for it.

Wow - that's amazing AlwaysFairWeather! Congrats to you and that definitely makes me feel better! I gave myself a day to wallow then started querying again. :)

I'm really sorry to hear about your story, Rohallma (Oct 14)

If it makes you feel any better, I know exactly how you feel.

I had a full with Leigh for over a year. As I received no response to my nudges, I queried another agent at the agency (Leigh was still at Writers House at the time) and got an instant request for a full and a very fast, helpful personal rejection letter not long after.

A few months later, I received an offer of representation, and contacted all the agents who still had my full. Leigh was one of only 2 agents who didn't bother to respond.

My MS was then quickly sold to a major house for a six-figure advance. So don't give up - I had over 50 requests for a full and over 240 rejections before I struck it lucky. All it takes is one "yes" to change your life!

My advice is to avoid the bigger agents who have assistants and gatekeepers and too many clients to really consider new ones and instead be on the lookout for younger agents with smaller client lists who don't have assistants.

Check for newly promoted agents at the mid-size agencies or boutique agencies. These are the agents you can deal with directly and these are the agents who are looking to make a name for themselves and are willing to take a risk on a debut author. Too many times I had an assistant show enthusiasm and request a full only for that assistant to later leave, and then the MS goes into limbo.

Good luck to you and everyone!
