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.

I just took a look in the timeline explorer and the answer is: it varies, but no more than three months. however, if you're going to see an offer it's more likely to come in the first three weeks (one took two months, though.)

I received a very kind rejection:

Dear Taylor:

Thank you so much for thinking of me for your query. I wish I could offer a more personalized response but on average, I receive 500+ email query letters a week. Do know that every query letter and sample are read and even though your project is not right for me, it might be right for another agent so don’t give up! I’m also sorry I have no agent recommendations to offer.

Good luck with all your publishing endeavors.

Sincerely,

Kristin Nelson

I'm not quite sure if it's a form or not, being that it's different than the versions below. Either way, I appreciate her kindness.
