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.

FYI-- I sent my query to the Kaplan agency email address and did not receive an auto response. She emailed me from her gmail account. Hope that helps.

UPDATE: Very kind personalized rejection---she said she admired the writing but hadn't had much luck selling a manuscript with a similar premise. Ah, well. Onward and upward! :-)

------

Submitted a query and pages in response to her request from a first-line contest. I was pleasantly surprised she liked it---and to be honest, based on what I've read about her tastes, I think my novel is a bit out there for her. But she asked to see more, so I figured it couldn't hurt to go ahead and submit. :-)
