Do you know who the most-queried agent is? What about genres - which ones are agents requesting the most? And which agent is most likely to reject you?
The answers are just a click away. QueryTracker.net has a feature called Top Ten Lists. With over 21,000 members entering data, these lists are constantly and automatically updated to help you spot the hottest trends. And, if you're like me, you'll find them a fun place for satiating your curiosity! (To find the lists on QT's main page, just hover over "Reports" in the main bar.)
There are Top 10 Lists for the following:
- Most Queried Agents
- Most Accepting Agents (i.e. those who request most material)
- Most Non-Responsive Agents
- Most Rejecting Agents
- Most Popular Fiction Genres (that are submitted to agents)
- Most Requested Fiction Genres (requested by agents)
- Most Popular Non-Fiction Genres
- Most Requested Non-Fiction Genres
To answer the questions I posed at the beginning of this post, the number one most-queried agent is Nathan Bransford. And the genre agents request to see the most? Young Adult. As for who rejects the most queries... you'll just have to look that one up for yourself. *wink*
Wishing you all a blissful 2010 in which all your literary dreams come true.
