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".

3/22 EQ + 1st ch memoir
3/23 Request from assistant Kira
4/5 ER from Kira - personalized but confusing because her feedback was the exact opposite of every other reader so far. Proof of how subjective this all is.

I submitted a query to Emma Sweeney on 11/16/15.
I nudged on the query because I received another offer of representation on 12/28/15.
Received a response from Margaret Sutherland Brown on 12/29, asking for the full.
Email from Emma Sweeney & Margaret on 12/30 asking for phone call. We talked and they offered co-representation!
12/31/15 - Happily accepted offer!!!! I am thrilled to be working with them!

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

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 noah@emmasweeneyagency.com


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.
