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".

No response--unfortunately for me she had just finished a conference the day before & tweeted that she was extremely busy. I didn't check her Twitter page before submitting.

Jessica's note was so nice and her response so quick that it is all the more heart-breaking that this didn't work out. She had some very helpful comments and offered to look at future projects, so I will try to look on the bright side, but awfully disappointed.

Good luck to anyone who is querying her; she seems absolutely amazing.

Thank you, angelscribe! I think querying has shot my nerves at last, because I'm in a total state over this one, bothering all friends and family I've ever had to cross their fingers and toes for me!
