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.

"Thank you for your query. Unfortunately, for the foreseeable future, I am not accepting new clients. I wish you success."

Although he's closed to queries, I've tried anyway. I've gotten the same response as CHowland again, another same day rejection.

Thanks for querying me about your work. With a very full plate, I take on new writers only in exceptional circumstances, and your work is not, I am sorry to say, for me.

bberetta: It is essentially a waste of your time and an agent's to send a thank you for responding to a query. It just clogs up their already very full inbox and slows response times because of it. If, on the other hand, you were thanking an agent turning down your partial or full, that's another story. As for his rather blunt rejection, it is what it is--he minces no words, is short and to the point. There is no room for hurt feelings (and I'm not aiming this at you, just as a general observation) in the querying process. It is best to keep this exercise in perspective: as a business letter soliciting an agent for representation. As eseckman succinctly stated: it aint personal. It's business.

I read his response differently...I think he is wanting you to know he didn't read it, doesn't read new writers, so don't take the rejection as any sort of opinion on your work. Kind of like when teenage girls say, 'nothing personal...I just don't date younger guys'
