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.

10/10 Form Rejection, which is a little bit annoying on a full. I guess that's the business.

Pass on 9/7/16. She really pushed right up to my deadline and then gave a really generic pass. The kind that makes me think she may not have read a word. Which is fine, because I love my new agent and couldn't be happier!
