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".

Query Guidelines

In all submissions, please include a contact phone number as well as your email address. If we are interested in your work, we will call or email you. If not, we will respond via email. (Accordingly, please do not send a self-addressed stamped envelope (SASE) and do not send any pages or materials you want returned to you). Our response time is generally 4-8 weeks. We welcome unsolicited materials and look forward to reading your work.

Leave comments about your experiences with this literary agent, or read what other authors have to say.

Form letter rejection, but quick is better than the lingering death of "no response means no":

Thank you for your email. While your project sounds interesting, I don’t think it is right for my list at this time.

I appreciate your querying us and wish you good luck in finding the right agent who can successfully champion your work.

Sincerely,

Jill Marsal
