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.

Congrats to those who've gotten a request. I'll be querying E. Coops next month after I tweak my query again.

oops, before sending that email I checked my email history and found a message saying no from E. Coops. So it's sayonara.

11/19/15 Never heard back on my partial, submitted last spring. Now that I have completely overhauled the book in accordance with agent feedback and yet still don't have an agent, I'm going to contact Maria again.
