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.

Encouraging, a few things she didn't like (but they were major to the story). Cordial, nice, easy to communicate with, and encouraging; will sub again if this novel isn't picked up.

Backtracking to give stat updates for my querying peeps:

This was a weird one.
EQ: 7/5/16
email sent to notify her of an offer from my dream agent 7/17/16
7/26/16: Full Request, but she hadn't read my "I got an offer" email so it was from the query alone
I emailed the next day apologizing for the confusion and to tell her I'd already accepted my offer. Tamar responded the same day wishing me luck and that she didn't hate me :)

I couldn't be happier with my agent (#1 on my dream agent list for a year!), but Tamar is a kind, amazing agent, and anyone who ends up with her will be very lucky indeed.

KristenH thank you. I have a full request from Laura but she won't tell me what the reading time is so I feel like I'm waiting for nothing to happen.
It's been 2 months.

Tor, the response time for full ranges from 3-6 months. So you have a long wait ahead of you. It's been a month.

5/25/15--On 5/11/16, I requeried Tamar with Venom. Today I've heard back from her with a pass--not a good match. I'll try her this summer with Chain Reaction.

Full R: 4/12, sent same day and she responded with: looking forward to reading.

I haven't heard back yet... hoping it wasn't lost in the shuffle of busy agenting.

Full request: 3/25
Rejection: 4/18. Alas, not meant to be, but she gave some helpful tips and I really appreciated the swift response - I bet she'd be great to work with. Good luck to the rest of you!
