The December Monthly Round-up
Happy New Year! Here's the December monthly round-up. I know I set the goal of reading all of the eQueries™ by the end of the year, but am sorry to say it just didn't happen. We were lucky enough to have quite a bit of family come visit, but that does cut into work time, and no sooner did family leave than I got sick—twice! I'm currently battling my second cold of the month! But I did put a good dent in the number and I consider that a partial win.
Here's where December ended up:
I did also review 3 full manuscripts and 1 proposal and had extensive conversations with the authors. Ideally, we'll be chatting again down the road about representation. I also reviewed 1 other full ms, but haven't yet reached out to the author. It's tricky. I'm still thinking about it.
Also in December, I requested 16 sample chapters and 3 proposals. So that's about 105 queries read and responded to, 4 full manuscripts reviewed, 2 proposals reviewed. Not bad, given all the family and illness, I'd say.
So, what am I waiting on? About 20 sample chapters and 3 proposals, plus revised versions of the manuscripts or proposals mentioned above.
Thanks, as always, for your patience.
