Thanks so much for thinking of me, but this one's just not quite right for my list. Due to a full workload, I have to be extremely selective about pursuing new projects.

Please know that this is a very subjective business and that tastes range widely among agents. Someone else may feel very differently—you deserve someone who is passionate about your work and is confident about their ability to position it.

Best of luck with this, and thank you so much for thinking of me.

Always verify agent's information before sending your query, and review the agent's website(s) for more up-to-date information.

Though we do our best, QueryTracker can not guarantee the accuracy of any information provided.

An agent listing on QueryTracker is not an endorsement or recommendation of that agent by QueryTracker.

Before contacting an agent, authors should verify and assess the agent's requirements and suitability by visiting the agent's website(s), and becoming familiar with ways to spot and avoid bad agents. A good place to start is Writers Beware, a watch group that helps inform and protect authors from shady practices.
