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.

Nudged: June 23 - Received extremely nice reply from different assistant, assuring me my MS is still in their queue and apologizing for the delay. As of today (July 28), I still haven't heard a peep. Debating whether to nudge again, but I don't want to appear like a pest...

For those wondering about pasting vs. attaching for this agency, I did attach the synopsis and two chapters as PDFs, so clearly that was not a deterrent.

I submitted a partial as requested back in mid-April and still haven't heard back. Hoping to hear from them soon!
