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".

Submitted late night on July 18th. By the morning I had a "thank you for thinking of me, but I am not a good fit for this" email in my box. (My book is Urban YA about drug addiction). She's very fast and I am still happy for the quick response.

EQ 7/1/16 (Requery Venom)--Same day rejection. (Not right fit). Will try her later this summer with Chain Reaction or my new ms this fall.

I re-queried Ms. Crowe on 3/4/16 after cutting my MS length, asking if she'd now be interested, and she replied on 3/7/16 with an FR. Fingers crossed! This is the first request I've gotten for my manuscript, and being repped by Ms. Crowe would be a dream come true!
Emailed about a rewrite: 5/28
(She kindly replied back and said she'd be happy to hold off on reading)

Wordologist, Sara didn't confirm receipt of my full, but she replied within a couple of hours when I nudged her with an offer from another agent. My YA is a modern retelling of a classic with romance as the central plot (sorry, infinitycookies). Good luck and thanks!

To folks who got a full req from Sara---did you receive confirmation from her when you sent the MS?

*** By the way, congrats, @newvoice! :)

I'm thrilled to be represented by my first choice agent! Miracles can happen in the slush pile. I'm waiting to sign the author-agent agreement before making a public announcement on social media. Sara is one of the few big time agents who checks her own query inbox, which is why her replies are brief. Note that I received more rejections than requests and that the biggest category was unanswered queries. Don't give up!

First of all, Sara is lovely- quick to respond and enthusiastic. I just received a rejection from her on my full request (my very first full request rejection!) and I'm a little heartbroken because she's one of my dream agents, but I'm also so happy that she said she really enjoyed the book. It seems her rejection has much to do with the fact that she just took on several other novels from the same genre (YA contemporary romance).

I'm staying hopeful. <3 Good luck, everyone!

Thanks mgmystery. I queried Sara after she favorited my picture book story at #DVpit. I subbed to her on 4/27 but am still waiting to hear back. Wasn't sure how long to wait before nudging.

She responds to all queries, so I wouldn't close it out. She's in meetings this week, so if you don't hear anything next week, I'd resend the origional query explaining you were concerned that it might not have reached her. She's really nice. I'm sure she wouldn't mind.

I queried 6/8 and have not heard back, though from the timeline it looks like she's both rejected and requested a ton of queries after mine. Any insight here on whether to close this one out or not?
