The January Monthly Round-Up

Well, I'm only a week into February, so it doesn't seem that late to be doing the January round-up.

In January, we...
  • Received 71 queries and declined 87;
  • Received 22 sample chapters and declined 15;
  • Received 1 proposal and declined 1;
  • Received no full manuscripts and declined 1;

We currently have on-hand to read...
  • 9 full manuscripts, including one from a current client;
  • 7 sample chapters;

I am currently waiting to receive...
  • 9 sample chapters;
  • 1 proposal
  • 1 full manuscript

As always, if we request material and don't hear from you in a month or so, we'll follow-up once.  If we don't hear in another month, we'll assume you are no longer interested in representation and discard your materials.

Thanks for the round-up, sir! I still can't understand for the life of me what would possess a writer to NOT send in materials when requested. Amazing. On an unrelated note, have you heard of the new online writer's workshop "AuthorSalon.com"? If so, do you have any thoughts about what they are trying to do?
