Please be aware:

My former agent worked at Fuse Literary. When she made the decision to leave agenting, Gordon and Laurie (the heads of the agency) informed her clients that the agency would not necessarily keep us on. We waited three weeks to hear back, with no communication about our work from the agency. Most of us were dropped with a copy-paste impersonal letter with no references. More information here:

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.
