About QueryTracker

Let QueryTracker tell you more about this literary agent. Including...

  • Query Response Times
  • Genres of Interest
  • Preferred Manuscript Lengths
  • The Best Time to Query
  • And More
And best of all, it's FREE.

How it works?

Writers provide data about their query experiences with literary agents.

That data is then compiled into reports showing details about each agent's query history, allowing writers to reach the literary agent that is right for their book.

Why is QueryTracker Free?

QueryTracker is free because it is our goal to collect as much data as possible about query letter results.

To do that, we need as many members as possible to submit their data, and the best way to do that is to make it free.

So please, join us in building the web's largest collection of query data.

FYI to everyone.
It took me some 3-4 hours of research on almost every site I could find to get contact details/information for Duncan McAra.

His actual email address is duncanmcara@mac.com

His requirements are:
Cover letter (brief)
Query Letter
Bio (brief and only mention that which is relevant)
Synopsis 1-2 pages max.
All in the body of the email.

I sent him an EQ yesterday & got a reply a few hours later – therefore I know the email works & he reads them. (fast too)
He was very polite but stated that: “At present my client-author list is fairly full, and I'm concentrating - in the main - on my published authors”

In a nutshell, he isn’t accepting submissions at this stage except if:
The author is from Scotland/Ireland
For Fiction he IS NOT interested in anything on the Science Fiction, high fantasy, horror, poetry, children’s. In reality he is CLOSED to submissions.

My EQ was ER, but at least there is some info for those who fit closer to his criteria.
