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".

Most pompous rejection letter ever.

Don't bother.

They ought to stick with a no response policy because this kind of attitude would never make me recommend them to anyone.I ordinarily never complain about getting a response but this was so arrogant that even if they came back and offered to be be agent exclusively and dedicate their lives to my work, I would tell them to go suck it.

I'm learning most of these people are not willing to work for the 15% of whatever measly advance the publisher gives...2000 or 3000...300 bucks is not worth it to them. They want to be a parasite on someone with an established following who is going to put money in their pocket without having to do a thing. They need those authors far more than the authors need them. No vision to see an author willing to invest in their book and build a brand. There are some hardworking ones out there who know how to grow their business...stick with the bigger houses that have the common sense to run a business by working at it from the ground up.(Writers House. Maass. Etc...)This is not that agency!!
