Want to know where things stand with me and queries at this point? I'm not sure you really do. It's been a crazy busy month and the last two weeks have been the craziest. Needless to say, while I've been very busy submitting new projects, handing out revisions to clients and reading new material I've fallen very behind on my query reading.
In my inbox right now I have 360+ queries and am caught up through June 5, anything submitted prior to June 5 has been answered. If you have not received an answer on a query only I did not receive it.
I have roughly 14 proposals I still need to read. The oldest dates back to May 1 and I hope to get to it very soon.
I have 3 client submissions of various lengths that need to be read. Of course these are top priority.
This week I did a preliminary read on one client proposal. I need to read it a second time to give feedback. I did incredibly thorough revision on another client proposal, I read a full manuscript for consideration (had an offer from another agent) and I read another proposal that also had an offer.
Oh, and of course I did things like answer emails, make lunch appointments, review contracts, negotiate contracts and talk to authors.
Life is good. Have a great weekend.
