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.

Blatherskite,

Is the email address correct? Her website says "to send a query" email sarah@sll.com, which is Sarah Passick. Website page is here: http://www.celestefine.com/contact.html

Requerying Venom via snail mail to Celeste. No response last fall.

1/13/14--On 12/27/13, I queried Celeste with Chain Reaction. Today I've heard back. It's not a right fit and a link to her blog about what they want in a query.
