About QueryTracker

Let QueryTracker tell you more about this 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 agents.

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

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.

Sorry guys, just saw your responses!! I'm glad to hear things are going so well for you, Storymatic :) Ashleyallyn, makes me feel better that you can relate! I'm pretty sure my submission was a steaming pile of 'I'm so excited, this is an amazing, best-story-ever situation... Oh dear G-d, why didn't I think it over before I submitted' pile of crap. I've moved onto the next manuscript, taking my time before jumping the gun on this one!!

I don't know if it helps either of you feel more at ease, ashleyallyn and strange_angel, but shortly after I sent Brooks my full (because of an MSWL tweet he wrote), and started looking at it again and cringing, he asked to set up a phone call and offered me a revise and resubmit: bottom line, he liked the style and premise, but felt like the story pace and execution started to drop off after the first third. The fact that the conversation showed me he thinks about what COULD BE in what's in front of him, and not just what IS, makes me think he's less likely than other agents to dismiss a story if he has ideas about how to strengthen it. Anyway, I wish there was something I could do to help with the waiting game. . . I still have other queries and fulls out and those make me crazy, but working on the revision for Brooks has been a very positive distraction. I think your instinct to keep plugging is spot-on, strange_angel! Good luck to both of you!

strange_angel, your post literally made me laugh out loud! I think a lot of us have thought that at some point. I myself have made some horrible querying blunders and sent out some samples I later realized were stinky piles. And sometimes we are too hard on ourselves. I hear ya Storymatic, but that feeling of paranoia tends to creep in - especially when others are getting responses lickety split! :)

Thanks, Storymatic. I've come to feel like the story I submitted to him actually sucks a little bit, so I'm not really waiting keenly for a response. Time to admit it to myself and dive into the next round of creating/polishing/submitting.
