Ok, seriously, I have spent the last few hours compiling a list of agents into my Excel spreadsheet, and then taking those from that list and adding them and all their precious little info to another list I’ve created in Excel to keep track of those I’ve queried and what I’ve queried them about, to include their responses, if any, etc., etc. Make sense? Ok, good. Yes, I know, I’m anal. Now, here’s my issue: MORE AGENTS NEED TO ACCEPT EMAIL QUERIES! Only 25 of the agents I’ve pulled accept email queries! That’s out of 39 for those pulled in the genre I’m looking at (horror), and those that are seeking new clients (according to AgentQuery.com), and a good majority of them prefer SNAIL MAIL. Honestly, did you hear the forest fall? Watch out for that tree! I haven’t even looked at other agent-finding sites yet. Ugh. I dread the thought of stumbling upon misinformation. Nor have I looked at most of their websites yet to be certain that AgentQuery has the info correct. Ugh again. Crap, I just realized that I’ve added their emails but not their websites to the Excel spreadsheet. Back to work.
Ok, I’m done venting… for now.
UPDATE: Ooh, QueryTracker is cool! Why didn’t I notice this before? Sio, you need to check this out! The only downside to this is that you have to be a Premium member in order to list more than one manuscript, which costs $25/year.
