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 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".

@phalloides: Good point and thanks for noting the link. I debated whether to waste money sending it snail. But he's in my top 10, so I didn't want to risk it.

@newbie1: this is from a four year old interview. Not that it might not still be true, but the explorer for Seth shows that almost every query sent to him here has been by email.

NOTE TO ALL: Seth said in an interview he prefers hard copy queries because he "tends to lose email queries." Send it snail, if you're really interested in working with him.
