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".

Leave comments about your experiences with this literary agent, or read what other authors have to say.

If anyone can tell me if they've heard from this agent for more than a query, I would greatly appreciate it. Any replies to submissions, nudges, offers of rep, even interactions on Twitter? The length of time he's had my full isn't unheard of, but it strikes me as odd that he hasn't replied to anything - even an offer to send an updated version of my manuscript, after another agent's suggested revisions.

Kodi_R -- when did you submit it? Did you follow up? All might not be lost!

Sadly, I think I'm going to withdraw/close this query.

Oh, I got confused cuz you said the "most recent queries." But it's all good. I'm sure he'll get them when he can.

worddance, no, not at all. As samgodwin says, he seems very behind. I was pointing this out since I *hoped* it was good news that he's about to start tackling the submissions and queries he's had for several weeks and months :)
