Just received a form rejection from this agent addressing me by the wrong name . . . bringing into question whether I've actually been rejected or not. Is this worth an e-mail to him?

MartinWelker, He has switched over to QueryManager because of the problems they've been having with their form. You can query him there.

Despite drastically reducing the amount of information I attempt to send via the query form, I continually receive a message telling me that I need to reduce the amount of data I am sending. Time is money, and there are many other agents to whom I can send my queries - I am moving on.

Response to pawyckoff: I too am having this same problem; unfortunately, I don't have access to a Mac! I've been trying different browsers on my PC (Chrome, Bing) but no luck. Anyone else have suggestions?

Aevitas is now using a website-based query system and they ask for the first 50 pages copied into the form, but no matter what I do (changing formatting),only about 4 pages is accepted into the form. Is anyone else having this issue? Is there some trick I haven't discovered?

Update: I used a Mac (instead of PC or Chromebook) and it worked fine.

His areas of interest include self-help, pop culture, memoir, history, thriller, true crime, political and social issues, narrative food writing, and faith.

If no reply within 6 weeks, continue with other agents. Requests updates of any offers of representation elsewhere.

What to make of this agent . . . Some authors receive responses the same day, some have silence. Going to go with the 6 weeks suggestion and mark this one CNR. It's only been 4 weeks for me but I'm getting a little tired of this no reply business. The average human only lives about 70 years. I can't keep burning month after month in hope and delay just because agents don't reply. Rejections sting, but at least you know you can move on.

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.
