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 received the following form letter from this agent : We are sorry but our client list is already so long and the work on hand so heavy that we don't feel justified in adding to it." So why are these people still on Query tracker? Why did I waste my time, paper and postage? I am thoroughly pissed off.

I met Kathleen Zakhar at the Writer's Digest Conference east. She's an assistant, and isn't in this database yet.

Form rejection. Suspense novel. Said his workload is too heavy (a different polite way of saying "No", at least).
