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.

AAuthor, thanks for your supportive words. The reader's comments were heart-warming and heart-breaking. Unfortunately, it was a fit for that agency.

I wish you all the best, AAuthor

TenaRuss--so sorry to read about the rejection on your full--one month is amazingly fast (it would seem!) Keep going! As my writing mentor says: "Be Tenacious! Be Persistent!"
I've had 4 fulls and 2 partials out for 1 week to 5 weeks. Crickets chirping loudly.

The kindest rejection letter ever.

TenaRuss--thanks for the timeline! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. And, I'll wait to query another LMM agent for a few more days, I love Maria Massie for so many reasons. I've had 3 fulls out elsewhere for between 1-3 weeks and the waiting is only relieved by the act of continuing to query (and the obsessive watching on the QT data explorer...)

AAuthor, thanks for the congrats. :-D
My initial query was sent on May 2, 2016.
I received a request for 50 pages on June 15. Sent them immediately.
On June 27, I received this email: "Thank you very much for sending us a sample of [RT]. Please be assured that we will advise you of our decision, whether positive or negative, as soon as possible. In the meantime, should the status of your manuscript change - if, for example you should receive an offer of representation from another agent - and you require a decision sooner, please let us know and we will be happy to do everything we can to accelerate the review process."
I thanked them for their thoughtful message. (Not many agents do that!)
The request for the full arrived on July 8.
Wishing you the best of luck, AAuthor!

TenaRuss Congrats on the Full!!
Do you mind sharing your turnaround time? website says 2-4 weeks assume "no" but data here says otherwise. I'd like to move on to a different agent as I'm past the 28 days!

memoir

"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.
