This is the query log for my novel, Bloodshed on the Setting Sun.
This is where I will keep up with the query letter, synopsis, and sample chapters/pages that I send to agents. I will add to this as I send query letters, ect., and when I receive responses or no response. I will also add if I get an e-mail failure too.

Note: I also noticed that many of them only respond if interested, and the approx. time is about 8 weeks. The ones who ask for sample chapters and synopsis as an attachment often prefer it sent as a Word doc. Many will want something like query or query and title of book in the subject line of the e-mail. It will keep your submission from going to their spam box.

I hope this may be of help to those who are considering contacting agents.

1. Scott Miller-Trident Media Group
sent query letter via website form on 3/21/14
agents usually respond with 30 days
If the query goes through, you will receive an e-mail within minutes of your submission. This will let you know that it was received. (I received this e-mail, so I'm good to go on this part).
Note: There may be one than one agent who you may be interested in contact, but you can only contact one agent per 30 day period.
