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.

I can't find submission guidelines for him anywhere. Anyone know what he is asking for with your query. 1st Chapter? Synopsis?

"Bliss, the first bunch of rejections sting. After awhile, you shrug it off and move on. Hang in there." How true! I'm still in the stinging stage.. QT is amazing tool. I'm new at this but really am impressed with the supportive community of writers that are here.

I know exactly what you mean, blissfullyblack. I had the same issue with figuring out how to position my mystery, which is also a humorous not-cozy. Fortunately, it's historical, so I went with that, but I found it interesting that agents who seem to favor cozies had no interest at all. It's very good information! I stopped querying after getting feedback from some of my top agent choices and when I discovered that the second novel is better (still have one full out and I'm letting it ride).

Good luck with your revisions! Can't wait to see what happens when you get back!
