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.

Queried via e-mail 6/22 for SFFpit request. My query didn't show up on data tracker (I selected the referral/contest category when I recorded it).

EQ 6/22 115,000 word adult fantasy novel.

@treat: Not everyone on this site can afford a premium subscription to access the data explorer. For those people, the short posts under the comments are useful to estimate things like response rate and determine where the agent is in the queue. There's no need to be a jerk about this, especially in a random agent's comment section.

Mari, Thanks for sharing your experience. It would be so helpful if others did the same instead of this meaningless EQ 05/07 ER 05/22. The information about submission dates and rejections, genre, length of manuscript, form letter or helpful reply, should be updated on your query list where the accumulated statistics would have significance. Patrick notes "Don't forget to record your query in the tracking system." That is where it belongs--not under comments.
