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.

Upper middle grade urban fantasy

Update, 7/20/2015: Merciful query gods, I finally got a response, in the SASE I'd sent. Form rejection from Brian Egan, Guinsler's assistant, dated 7/17. Received 274 days after query. Makes me wonder whether Egan was just hired, and his first task was to go through Guinsler's 20 foot stack of neglected queries.

It's been 6 months. No word of any kind. Is he just lazy? If so, he wouldn't be a very good agent for a debut novel.

When I met Robert at a conference early May, he asked for the full. I nudged him in August, still haven't heard back.
