Accepts Queries Via...

Snail-Mail: Closed

E-Mail: Closed

Online Form: Closed

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 query letter with the first three pages of your manuscript in the body of the email. The subject line of your email should include the word "Query" along with the title of your manuscript.

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

Dear Author,

Many thanks for your email regarding your manuscript, which I am declining with my regrets.
Given the demands of running a full-service agency and continuing to best represent my current clients, I must make difficult decisions every day regarding what new projects I can sign. I appreciate your thinking of me, and wish you the best of luck in your search for representation.

After a little back and forth, Kate passed on my partial but sent a very nice note that she really liked my writing and my character, but she's already representing a similar book. This is the second agent to tell me this, so I've apparently written to trend. :P

@stefynoell I can't say for sure, but typically agents will address queries that came in before they closed submissions. Good luck!
