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.

'Dear Author...'

Kinda funny to get these super late, impersonal form letters after I've already signed with an agent. It truly IS subjective, guys. What one person loves, another will send you a 'Dear Author' for. Don't worry, querying friends, you'll get there!

"Dear Author,

Thanks so much for letting us take a look at your materials, and please forgive me for responding with a form letter. The volume of submissions we receive, however, makes it impossible to correspond with everyone personally.

Unfortunately, the project you describe does not suit our list at this time. We wish you the best of luck in finding an agent and publisher for your work, and we thank you, once again, for letting us consider your materials."

I think I messed up. I was already rejected by Jim at this agency and must have missed the 'a no from one of us is a no from all of us' in the guidelines and queried Lauren. Is that true? I saw Kristin's comment and cringed. :/ I guess I interpreted the guidelines to mean one at a timeā€¦ Oh, well.
