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.

8/22 - EQ
8/22 - ER **At least it was a personal response and he commented specifically on something I said so it was NOT a form. Also he said at the moment he had 'plenty of Fantasy' but thanks.

Any updates on this agency? It appears from their website they still have Anna Ghosh on board, but she has gone off and started her own agency as we know from QT. However, when you click the email on the Scovil Galen Ghosh site, her old sgglit email is still working!!

I only ask this because I'm the last one to query her at her own Ghosh agency (which was CNR) wondering what the etiquette is (just in case) and if one is allowed to query both agencies or if a CNR/No from her own means a "no" from everyone at SGGLIT as well. Thanks.

He said my query letter was definitely well written, but he's not expanding his YA list right now. I'm just flattered he thinks the query's good!
