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".

Personal rejection letter at least, he found my story intriguing but just not right for him. Super bummer.

8/30/13, I queried Peter with Chain Reaction. Two weeks ago, I nudged him. I'm officially closing it as no response. Good luck Corabean!

Well I got a request for a partial (3 chapters) when I had already submitted three chapters with the query and synopsis. Go figure. Looks like a good agency.

I am not trying to be rude. I was merely trying to point out that the materials they request in a number of the "partial requests" listed here are the same materials the Foundry submissions page request be included with the initial query. As a matter of course, Peter's assistant Matt will respond to a query that does not include those materials with a request that they be sent. Compared to just junking a submission that does not match their specifications (which most agents do), they give you a chance to meet them. I think that is polite.

"It's incredibly polite, but that's all it is."

Sorry, but I think I'll be the judge of that, mate.

Speaking of polite, it's pretty rude to imply that an agent is only being polite, and is not actually interested in one's work.

Good luck with your book, though.
