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.

Submitted query 3/17/14 and have to say that I don't expect much on this.

I've read with great interest those of you who've been writing a very long time with several novels with no representation. I've been at this 3 years and frustrated. But I admire each and every one of you. It is an accomplishment to have finished a novel. I know most if not all of you did this of your own accord, maybe for fun at first, then to see if there was a payoff.

Writing a novel is no small feat. It is my hope that all of us get back the effort we've put in doing this.

A lot of excellent agents don't have websites and snail mail works better for some agents. From a writer's standpoint it's not quite as easy to say a snap no when it's a snail query.
