Don’t Ruin It for the Others!

Guys, I don’t want to do this. I WANT to respond to every query I receive. But if authors keep ignoring my advice to track their submissions, and keep resending queries I’ve already responded to, well, at some point I’m going to realize what a waste of my time and yours it is to keep responding to those repeats.
Don’t make me do that, please. Don’t be a spoilsport. Track your submissions and don’t resend a query to someone who’s already responded to it. The more time I have to use to track down my previous response and send it back to the author, the less time I have to read another author’s query.
In a related rant, please don’t call me to ask why I turned down your query. I did. You know that. Move on and find another agent to query.
I’m sorry if this comes across as mean, or ranting, but I want to find new authors. That’s why I do this. Anything that takes away from time looking for my next client, is time wasted.
