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".

Query Guidelines

Include the FIRST three chapters with your query letter. Attachments are ok.

Leave comments about your experiences with this literary agent, or read what other authors have to say.

Does anyone know if you HAVE to send the first 3 chapters as an attachment, or can they also be pasted in the email?

Sent query for chick lit on March 4. Got rejection March 13. Simple and to the point and, though the rejection stung (doesn't it always?) it was SOOO much better not to be left hanging.

Kimberly_Ash - Yeah, I got the same form letter, without my name or any kind of salutation on the top. I found it a little rude, to be honest.

Assuming this is her form letter; my name wasn't at the top:
Thank you for sharing your work with me. Unfortunately, I feel that in today's market, I cannot take on projects unless I feel strongly about them. I'm sorry to say that it didn't happen with this one. This, of course, is just my opinion and others may feel differently.
I wish you the best of luck with all your publishing endeavors.

I wasn't aware that she's not really looking for fantasy. I wish I would have read an old interview before submitting. Oh well, on to the next.
