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.

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.

EQ: 3/29
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!

Weird... I queried her on 2/17 and haven't heard a thing, yet I'm seeing rejections then, and more recently... is she hopping around with her responses, I wonder?

I'm not really sure what agents are looking for nowadays:

EQ: 2-19-2016
ER: 3-2-2016

"Please forgive this impersonal note but the high volume of correspondence makes it difficult for us to respond to you personally. Thank you for your query. Unfortunately it doesn’t match what we are looking for at this time. We hope other agents feel differently."

Who knew it would be THIS hard to get an agent. I always know its a rejection, once I see the "Dear Author," on the timeline of inbox.
