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.

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.

They only accept queries on the first and second of each month, but I sent mine early this morning (11/1/13) and got a polite but impersonal form rejection a few hours later.

6/3/13-nudged after offer from another agent. She says she's behind on submissions and declined, so if you have a full out to her, be patient. I think she's swamped.

Professor, you have the middle paragraph for a mini synopsis after the opening graph and the closing graph. That's what I meant. But a detailed outline is one that's chapter-to-chapter, equally hard as a synopsis.

A query is not a mini-synopsis of any sort - there simply isn't room. it's an overview of the feel of the book meant to be an enticement for the agent so they will want to know more. And a synopsis is usually one page, two at most, but most agents prefer one page if at all possible. Again, think of a synopsis as the story told as if you were telling someone about you book - what you would say in a quick conversation that would tell them enough that they would know what your book is about - and not chapter-by-chapter.

In a query, you have room for a mini synopsis. They just want the bare bones of your story in the synopsis, usually at 2 pages. And that's hard to do. WriterElizabeth made a good point.
