CSD - Thanks for the update. I used the email address on her QT page. Also, it seems her TBA page needs updating, as she states that "I’m also willing to consider fiction as long as it’s crime fiction or a mystery that involves a murder," which is why I queried her in the first place.

@sfcommuter - I just submitted a query and received a confirmation email that she received it. Maybe try again or check the address you sent to?

She responded within ten minutes:
Thank you for sending me your query. My list is currently very focused on nonfiction and so I’m not the best agent for you. Please consider querying one of my TBA colleagues instead. You can see who a potential fit for your work would be here.

I just sent her a query and got a bounce back telling me that she's closed to queries.

A form, but a nice one.

"Thank you for letting me consider your project for possible representation. While there are aspects of your work that I admire, I’m sorry to say that it isn’t quite a fit for my list.

Please know that I’m so very grateful for the opportunity to consider your work and wish you nothing but the best in your search for representation!

Best wishes,

Victoria Cappello"

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.
