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.

I have used four email addresses in the agency's online submission form, but in each case the message has bounced back as
"spam." I called the agency seeking assistance and was told "try again, it should work now." It does not.

FR: 5/20/16, from his assistant Sarah Perillo. She's building her own list, and she seems very lovely and super professional! Can't wait to hear back from her :)

Does anyone know if we are supposed to only send a query letter? I'm assuming that's the case given the lack of summision information.
