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.

Though the rejection I got did seem like a form email, the form email itself does kind of look like she would recommend a specific agent in the rejection itself for certain manuscripts, so I guess it would be a silver lining for some folks if that is the case.

Thank you for submitting your query and giving me the opportunity to consider your work. Unfortunately, in today’s increasingly tough publishing market, I cannot offer you the support that you need for your project.

Though my limited time precludes me from recommending other specific agents, a good place to start would be the Association of Authors’ Representatives website.
Please do not allow this letter to discourage you. Many best-sellers have been passed on numerous times prior to being successfully published.

I wish you the best of luck finding an enthusiastic agent and publisher for your book.

I kept getting a bounce back message from the submission email, so I queried her directly explaining. My friend had the same problem with Katie Grimm has anyone else experienced this? I think it's because my submission has language...

On 2/3/16, I've requeried Maura with Chain Reaction. Today I've nudged her and heard back--a pass with no reason. I'll try Katie this spring with Venom for better luck.
