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

Please note that she only responds to queries in which she is interested. If you haven't heard from her in 2-4 weeks, your project is not a good fit for her.

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

"Thanks so much for sending along A BIRD IN MY HEAD, which we've now had a chance to read. You're a very talented writer, and we were especially impressed with your tight prose and narration. But, given the current precarious state of the market, we are afraid that we just didn't fall in love enough to offer you representation. We are therefore going to step aside so you can go ahead and find an agent who will give you the full enthusiasm you deserve. Tastes vary from agency to agency and we have no doubt someone else will feel differently about A BIRD IN MY HEAD."

Thanks again for letting us have a look and we wish you the best of luck.

Did anyone else's rejection from Ms. Massie decline on just her behalf, or on behalf of the whole agency? I believe their websites explains that if an agent declines, one may query another. But she is my second rejection from this agency, and the email said that my project is not right for the entire agency. Just curious if I should stop bugging all of them. Thanks!

UPDATE: Never mind! I dug through the old comments here and found the rejection I received. Anyone's guess, I suppose, if it's worth trying others at this agency...

Literary / Historical

I am in awe of Ms. Massie. Starstruck by her perspective in the P&W interview article from a few years back.
