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.

"Unfortunately, we have determined that we are not the appropriate agents to represent this material. In this very competitive market, we are simply not enthusiastic enough about our ability to sell this work to offer representation."

Thanks! It's only been a couple weeks but I just wanted to be sure I wasn't missing something. Didn't want to be waiting like a fool and then she didn't even have it.

She didn't confirm receipt of mine. I got a form rejection about two weeks after submitting, though. If it's been a matter of months, you could give her a nudge. Good luck!

Does Miriam usually confirm if she received your full manuscript? I ask because she requested mine but I never heard if she got it or not.
