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".

I suggest nudging again. I emailed her a revision mid-December and she got back to me some time in January confirming she received it and would read. Her email mentioned her not being sure if she'd replied before and the holidays being crazy busy. Your email may have gotten lost in the jumble.

eawrites, from the "reports" section above, it looks like she almost always has replied to tracked submissions. I would go ahead and ask one more time if you don't hear by the end of the month. I'd also put "follow up on 9/15/14 full submission" or something as the subject (which you probably did already, but just in case). Good luck!!!!!
