Find an agent for your book.
Join QueryTracker to access more query and agent information, including...
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".
Query GuidelinesA nonfiction query should clearly describe the project and the authorâ€™s qualifications for writing it, emphasizing any â€œplatformâ€ and existing audience the author has developed for the book and listing any professional published work. A fiction query should include the genre or category of the work; the approximate word count; a brief synopsis describing plot and main characters; the author's writing credentials; and the first chapter or first 7â€”10 pages of the manuscript pasted into the body of the email. It is also useful to mention any trade press books to which your work might be compared. Please provide full contact information (email, mailing address, phone number) and any relevant biographical information and professional credentials. If we are sufficiently intrigued by your project, we will ask for samples or the complete proposal or manuscript.
