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.

After just getting a VERY subjective rejection on my full, this full request feels pretty nice.

From what I've heard, it could take months for her to return an email. But when she's on, she's on!!

Anyone else hear back? I heard her clients are waiting a long time, which would be even more annoying since those are exclusives. Kate Quinn is with New Leaf now.

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

She took more than five months to respond and just sent a generic "didn't fall in love with it" rejection. Seems to be her MO. Oy.

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!
