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.

Hi Patrick,

I tried again with two different email addresses and still the MAILER-DAEMON message came up for Nancy again both times. So I tried querying Natanya at her agency instead and it went through fine. I think it just might be a tech issue with Nancy's Inbox. I see below in this thread of comments others have had a similar issue with querying Nancy.

PaigeTurner, may have been a temporary glitch. Give it another try. Anyone else having trouble?

Email bounce back "undeliverable" MAILER DAEMON - 5/6/2016

I tried a couple of different times with a different email, but neither has been deliverable.

She is no longer listed on Writers Market, so guessing she's no longer in business.

Argh! didn't see the note about attaching until after already sent. I'm guessing this will be an automatic pass because I didn't follow the guidelines.
oh well.

Has anyone tried to query her recently? I tried to resend a query I had sent last October and it was returned with a mail delivery failure notice.

Note: I had my e-mail bounce back from both my personal e-mail and gmail. Noted on the submissions page:
"As sample material is vital for all queries, feel free to send via attachment rather than pasting pages directly into the body of your email. Thank you for formatting your queries accordingly."

After attaching my 25 pg sample rather than pasting into the e-mail body, it went through.

I got three bounce backs on my queries using Yahoo mail. Mailer-Daemon said "550 The content of this message looked like spam. [BODY]"
Switched to Gmail and it went through. FYI, Yahoo users. May not have been Yahoo, but my email address which is a bit commercial.

@robwest316. Doesn't sound very organized... It's better to have no agent than an agent who might lose your documents.

Just for information for all of you, I did receive a rejection after submitting more than a year ago.
Here is how it went:
EQ- 2/2013
Received email saying they'd accidentally thrown it out. Could I send again?
Re-sent on 4/2013
ER-7/2014 (FORM)

More than a year later. It was kind of funny, but really I prefer that then no response. Good luck to all of you. I think she's pretty busy, so you'll have to be patient
