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.

This was the most amazing rejection letter I've received. He said my query was well-written and that my novel sounded strong and competent but he represents too much of this type of fantasy right now. I plan on trying with my next one. :D

Russell really is a fantastic guy, and definitely has a lot of insight and experience in the business. I had the opportunity to talk to him in NYC some months ago. The subject of his non-responsiveness to queries in general is exactly what TerryRodgers said: he's a huge agent, and doesn't have time to reply to every query, especially since he gets hundreds a week and he'd rather devote that time to his existing clients. When he does reply, it's usually with personalized feedback, but those are very few. I also asked about if he was taking on new clients for YA, and he mostly does younger audiences now when his current clients ask him.

And for those querying, definitely don't use comp titles. He doesn't care for those.

He's a huge agent. It's obvious he didn't connect with your query and sample pages. No reason to get upset. Just move on.

I sent a follow-up email after a month. He replied saying he never got the original email. (A whole wasted month!!) So I re-sent. Today he sends a one-liner basically saying "no." Absolutely no reason, no feedback. Utterly useless. Man am I disappointed in this guy.
