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.

Thank you for sending us the query for your memoir Unsave Me, which we have read with interest. Though this is a compelling narrative, vividly drawn, we are sorry to say it is not right for our list. We wish you luck with your submissions.

8/05/14 -- sent a query letter
9/06/14 -- response from Brandie Coonis asking for the first chapter (I had included only the author's notes) as they were interested in reading it. I sent the first chapter and have not heard anything back yet.
10/03 -- I sent a followup to Brandie asking if she received the first chapter and have not gotten any response back yet.

Tahni --- sorry about the rejection. It is very hard to have a thick skin. I have taken several writing courses and one teacher said that you have to only have 2 of three things to get a book published:

1. A book/manuscript
2. Luck
3. Persistence

Sounds like you have a book. So you only need a little luck OR persistence. Just keep persisting and you will find that agent. It is really tough and we just have to keep trying. Best, J

07/05--sent initial query.
08/16-- got personalized rejection from Rebecca's assistant asking that I query Rachel Marks instead.
08/27--got another e-mail from Brandie asking for the full manuscript,
09/12-- Beautiful personalized rejection full of praise for my manuscript, with some suggestions to make it better. Ms. Coonis says she loved the story and that it was one of the "most well-developed, vivid stories" she's read, but that it's "not a good fit" for this agency right now.

Honestly, this rejection kind of hurts more than a form rejection. She mentioned so many wonderful things, and I couldn't stop smiling at what she wrote, but I still fell short of being representation-worthy. It's kind of my fault for getting my hopes up in a business that requires such thick skin, but still...

Anyway, good luck to those of you still waiting. This was my number one choice for agencies, and anyone who gets to work with them is lucky, indeed!
