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

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".

I'd had Ms. Heschke marked as a CNR but actually got a rejection from her about a week and a half ago.

Initial query - October 2013
Re-queried - January 2014 (because she favorited a tweet during pitmad - in the email I did note that I'd previously sent the query and apologized if I shouldn't have resent it)

Then I got a very nice, very detailed rejection on my query and first 3 chapters on June 30, 2014.

Since I'd had her marked CNR, I actually queried her back in June for a completely different project. At least I know I might be in for a very long wait ;)

Talk about prompt! She was very sweet and mentioned enjoying the premise and opening pages. Fingers crossed.
