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.

Q: 5/3
PR: 5/3 (within 4 hours) -- and a very prompt thank you!
R: 7/27
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!

Does anyone know if I submitted a query to her before she closed (6-15-16), will she still respond to it?

I hear you, gowiththeflow. Not considering self publishing, but am resisting submitting to small presses. I keep hoping an agent will call.

Good luck, Patchi. I just keep telling myself that one day YA fantasy won't be as saturated, so even if nothing happens with this book right now, maybe I can sell it later on. Also, for the first time I'm considering self publishing because I'm so frustrated. Not sure I want to go down that road, though.

Hang in there gowiththeflow. I'm in the same boat. I was aiming for NA fantasy, but people encouraged me to stick to YA. NA hasn't taken off in spec fic, but YA is so saturated it's discouraging. Can't give up hope, though...

YA fantasy. She thinks the plot is too similar to what's already out there. I'm really regretting that I wrote a YA fantasy. This seems to be the absolute worst timing for it. Wish I'd known when I started it in 2014 that it would come off as so unoriginal now. *sigh*
