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".

Lightning-quick request, but I'm seeing a ton of fulls that were later rejected.

And…
ER: 10/27 (form, but a nice form) :-(

Thanks so much for sending __________, which I read with great interest. Unfortunately, I’m going to be passing at this time.

Fiction, as I’m sure you know, is just about the toughest thing to sell in the current marketplace. I need to really fall in love with something before I can even think of taking it on. Though there is much to appreciate here, I’m afraid that I ultimately didn’t believe I would be its best advocate.

Thank you again, sincerely, for the chance to take a look. I wish you all the best of luck placing this successfully.

Just for people wondering - it doesn't seem Jim confirms receipt of a full. Good luck to everyone!
