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.

My first round was somewhere between 15-20, while the last two were 10-15. From the previous manuscripts I've queried, I had a list of around 50-60 total agents who were interested in the middle grade fantasy genre, so I chose 10-20 rounds to give myself a solid 3 to 4 rounds of queries before I ran out of prospective agents. From debut author interviews I've read, querying 10 agents per round seems to be the most common answer though.

It'd be great if QT had a report that looked at the average number of requests an author gets before they receive an offer of rep. Based on those debut interviews, it seems like the average number is often very low, while other times I've seen horror stories of someone getting 10+ plus requests without an offer. I guess it all depends on finding the right agent.

Best of luck with the requests you have and those to come.
