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.

That's just a confirmation email, Ytimble. Not a rejection.

same day:
Thank you for contacting ESA.

If you have sent us a query about your manuscript, please sit tight while we read your work. Because of the volume of e-mail we receive, we are unfortunately only able to respond to queries when we're interested in reading more.

If you have an administrative question regarding the agency -- foreign rights, who we represent, etc -- please contact

Many thanks and best wishes.

Hungry, rookie errors are okay. I've made a bunch of them, when I first queried, four years ago. I never gotten an official response from Emma for either one of my mss though.

Thanks, but I think I may have made a rookie error and queried too early. A friend is represented by The Andrea Brown Agency and I asked if she'd read it, she said yes, but she's very busy and I got impatient waiting and started querying. She finally read, and likes it and will forward it to her agent for me, IF I make some revisions. I realize I should have waited for more feedback.

I don't mind doing another revision, but I have fulls and a partial already floating around agencies and I may have wasted my shot with them...
