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.

Thank you for letting us review your material which we read with great interest. Unfortunately, we have determined that we are not the appropriate agents to represent this material. In this very competitive market, we are simply not enthusiastic enough about our ability to sell this work to offer representation.

We wish you the best of luck placing this successfully. Thank you, once again, for letting us consider it.

Best regards,

She wrote a very nice, detailed letter about my book, saying positive things about it. However, she didn't feel she could place it in a very tight thriller market. I had hoped that maybe she was the one, but I guess I should have paid more attention to her numerous full requests and subsequent rejections. It's extremely disheartening to have a full request and then receive a rejection.
