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.

Oh, drat. Sorry, alibryn. A form on a full is always tough. Mine's over a month old, so I'm guessing I'll be in the same boat soon. Good luck with the others still out!

Oh alibryn,
I'm sorry. That's harsh. Good luck with your book. Someone will actually read the full that they request and love it. I know it.

So I did nudge, based on their 2-months timeframe. Less than 5 hours later got a form rejection.

On a full.

So yeah, theres's that then!

I was wondering this too, since she's usually pretty quick. But they do pass submissions around the agency, so I guess it can take longer if another agent is reading and backed up. Their guidelines say to check-in to make sure they received it if you haven't heard back in two months.
