Since Alex's bio on the Donaghy website listed contemporary fiction,literary fiction, espionage, and thriller/mystery, I wondered if QT's historical fiction listing was still valid. I haven't queried him yet.

Using QueryManager it takes a lot of time to submit, but the way it guides you through is actually quite helpful, at least for me.

Unhelpful rejection came 5 hours later:

I'm sorry, but your project does not sound like a fit for me at this time, and so I will have to pass. Thank you for considering me and best of luck with your future queries.

Hi isinglass and Lizzie,
Since Alex is using I can take his genres from there. He sets them there himself, so they are more current then their website.

If you look at his query form, those genres are listed as options.

So, query away, and good luck.

Are the Query Tracker genre categories for Alex Franks correct? They say that he takes fantasy and horror, but his list on the DLG website doesn't have them.

Dear J.J.,
