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.

not true. I was also rejected by somebody else (Michael) , but I currently have full requests from a few amazing agents.

At a minimum I know the stats that are on this website which go back 2 years and show many requests over time. people record both snail mail and email queries on here.

According to her 90 day history it's not a huge amount of requests per query (and I'm a reject in that pile!)

It may be that they've streamlined interns and email requests. Some agents just cant deal with the HUGE amount of work coming through the query pipeline, but snail mail is drying up with the increase in postal costs.

Really? A history? She just began accepting emails about a yearago, maybe less. So how would you know her snail mail stats? Psychic? I have a friend who was a client at her agency. She only took queries by referral. But clearly, you two go back a long way. :)

It isn't every query she's requesting on and it isn't all the sudden. She has a history of making a lot of requests.
