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.

On 3/9/16, I've requeried Elyse Cheney with Venom. I've nudged her two weeks ago and got no word. So I'm closing her out as CNR and will retry her next month with Chain Reaction.

autoresponse and so far no further contact
No contact at all...closing this one out as a non-response/no-go. Even a No Thanks would be helpful
