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.

Agents, please contact us to make any changes to your profile.

Always verify agent's information before sending your query. Verify the agent's query preferences, contact information, genres of interest, and if the agent is still open to queries.


Although QueryTracker tries to stay current, it is not always easy. Never trust any single source for agent information (and yes, this includes QueryTracker).


Review the user comments for more information, and always follow exactly what it says on the agent's website.


And NEVER give money to an "agent".

"Dear Sir or Madam" rejection letter. I'm a little surprised I got anything at all. Wrote this one off months ago.

Is this agent still active? Still accepting queries? I found her in this year's Writer's Market, as well as on a couple recent lists of agents online, but I can't find any information about her besides that. (At least not anything in the last five years.)

I found Val Smith to be slow-moving, insightful, kind, maddening, extremely talented, and possibly forgetful

To wait 6 months for a response, and then another 3 only to be rejected...I'm just not sure that this is the kind of agent I want.

I sent her a full MS in April of 2006 and never heard a word back from her, even after repeated attempts to follow-up.
