Accepts Queries Via...

Online Form: Yes

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.

She said she is not accepting anymore new titles. It was kind of her to get back to me so quickly and tell me why ER.

7/5/16 sent a polite email to Nina Cochran, listed as the lit ass't on the website, inquiring about 6/3 submittable query. Mentioned my full is under consideration elsewhere. Preparing for the inevitable resounding silence (or a 'no'!)

7/6/16 Nina Cochran replied with an apology and their standard form letter rejection. Grateful for the quick reply. I'd suggest the other 6/3 outstanding queries also email her directly. Hoping your ms is a better fit for them than mine!

Out of a dozen or so queries sent, a few fulls and mostly crickets, I'm eternally grateful to agencies such as this one that have the resources to respond to our queries! It's a tough business on both sides. Getting an actual answer makes a huge difference.

Sadly, that is probably the case. I was thinking of waiting a bit more, but if you email them, please update us. (And I'll do the same.)

HopefulAuthor, I'm assuming it's a rejection (just somehow that day dropped off their response radar.) I'm thinking a polite followup?

AnselAuthor, I am in that group from 6/3 as well. Very curious about it.

EQ 6/3/16 with auto reply that submission was received.
6/28 no reply? I'm in a group of several others from 6/3 with NR, whereas most others before and after have heard back.
Anyone have any thoughts?

This agent uses Submittable and allows you to attach a document with 25 pages (rather than pasting.)

Thank you very much for submitting your project to me for consideration. I am not adding many new titles to my list at present, and thus must respectfully decline.

I wish you the best of luck with your work -

Contemporary Women's Fiction with a multicultural theme - She responded after 8 days and asked for the full manuscript! Fingers crossed!

I don't understand why the website said she's open to queries, because based on these comments, she's been closed to new clients for years now.

Form rejection: She's not taking any new titles now. Their site says you can query her through the Submissions site (which I did), but I guess she's not actually taking anything...?

I'm glad I checked here while waiting for an answer to a friend on how many pages is a good sample. I won't spend the time.
