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.

From rejection letter: "While you are clearly a gifted writer, he found that the complexity of your writing style...just did not click for him. Reactions to fiction can be so subjective and so this is probably just a case of the wrong agent for some very good material."

Snail Mail Q: 5/5

On 3/23/13, I queried Douglas via snail mail with Chain Reaction. Today I've heard back from his assistant--they passed, though she'd gotten the title wrong. She referred to the first part--she did the same for Venom last year too. I'll try Celeste Fine in May.

Actually, I found the email address online and took a flyer. I guess a mountain of rejection makes one a little gutsy. I was more surprised than anyone, but I noticed on the stats that almost every request was from an email query. Maybe there's something to it.

Congrats on the request, Matt. Curious-- did you have a referral to email? I see it says snail only.
