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.

Request for first 50 pgs from her assistant Allison Nolen 4/3/16. Letter says to give her at least 4 weeks to respond.

4/21/16 Nudged with offer. She responded within the hour thanking me for letting her know and she'd take a look at it and get back to me before the deadline.
4/27/16: Passed didn't connect with it.

I met Caryn Wiseman at a workshop and was able to participate in her critique group. She's wonderful! Very nice personalized rejection.

It turns out Caryn never received my MS! She dropped everything to read it on the spot last night. After reading the whole thing and making some very nice comments, she ended up stepping aside as she wasn't "head over heels in love." What a class act. Anyone would be lucky to work with her!

The requested pages came from her assistant Alison, who was intrigued by my story but wanted to see more pages before she requested the full. Fingers crossed!

oops I never updated this! Caryn gently passed but said she had no doubt this book would make it on shelves as it was "poignant" and "beautifully written" :-)

Should be fixed now. A recent change intended to speed up the report caused the error. Sorry.

I see what you mean, Drachen. I'll dig in and see what's going wrong. Thanks for letting me know.

Anyone else notice the stats are really wonky here?

Her 3 most recent requests on e-mail queries (according to Data Explorer) all came in at under 8 days, yet if you look at 'fastest response time' of 'all time' for a positive query, the table shows 86 days.

This isn't the first time I've noticed oddball stats like that, but this is one of the more stark examples.
