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.

EQ - 7/2
ER - 7/2 MG Fantasy

I know it's a rejection, but I'm so glad to finally hear back from him.

I had originally queried Brooks back in April, and then nudged in May, only to hear nothing. I assumed it was either ignored or lost in spam like many others. But, that wasn't good enough:)

So, I sent a new email, with a revised query and first pages. I did something different this time in the subject bar of the email, and I have no idea if that is what got it through to his inbox this time or not, but I didn't put the title of my book in all caps like I normally do. Aside from having slightly different text in the email body, that was the only significant change I made.

Like I said, no clue if that's what got the email through this time, but thought some of you would want to know.

Good luck!

Well, I've nudged twice and no response after 3 months. Guess I'll take the hint and close this one.
