Online Form: Yes

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

The first five pages of text for a longer work, or the full manuscript for a picture book text should be submitted below the query letter in the text body of the email, not as an attachment. Art samples or dummy texts should be inserted as links in the body of the query letter.

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

When you guys submitted your query, did you include the first 5 pages as per her profile to the Trident webform?

She replied today. A very kind rejection. Basically, it came down to the market and what she can sell and what publishers want. Sounds like books that can be used for educational purposes are hot. My books are funny, character driven manuscripts. Sigh. I'm running out of agents to query...

@daizylublue,Fingers crossed for you. I know you must be worried as well as irritated, but that has become a part of our lives (the long wait). My suggestion would be to query more agents and see what happens.

@Scriptorium26 I sure hope so. Thanks for the encouragement. Still no response to the nudge. I'm not going to contact her anymore and keep on trucking!

@daizylublue, She must be busy with her clients' manuscripts and other stuff. Hang on, If she was excited, there is still hope.

I sent a nudge today - a week shy of three months. She contacted me two days after a query and seemed excited. PB MS. She wanted to see more material, which I sent. Not a word since. She did not reply with a material received when I sent the additional manuscripts. She's a dream agent and I was through the roof with excitement. There's still hope, right :(?

@ bonecabela, did Alyssa reply that she received the partial/full?

Sent a requested full over a year ago; a couple months later was contacted by Ms. Henkin's assistant asking if the ms was still available. Since then, crickets. I've nudged once with no response -- wondered if anyone else had this experience? I'm nudging again today, and I'm hoping I'll get some kind of answer.
