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.

Does anyone know if I should resend if I don't receive a rejection/response? Or does no response mean not interested?

EDIT: he replied. not sure if it's a form reject? He sent this:

Hi ****,

Thanks for your email.

Your work is very nice and I appreciate you thinking of me but I'm sorry to say that I'm not actively seeking new clients at this time as I'm very focused on my current list. For that reason, I have to pass.

Thanks again for the opportunity. I wish you all the best moving forward.

Does he ask for first ten pages, or only a query letter? Couldn't find anything on the website...

Form rejection others mentioned receiving as well, "After careful consideration, I’m sorry to say that your project doesn’t feel like the right fit for me at this time. I should add that I’m not actively seeking new clients, so that played a large part in my thinking." Replied asking about 4 other agents in particular based on findings in Publishers Marketplace, and he was kind enough to reply with a suggestion as to who would be best to approach next.
