I haven't done a status on my queries lately, I guess because I've been closed. But for those who don't follow me on Twitter, I thought I should update you. As of a week or so ago (I've totally lost track of time) I'm fully caught up on queries, although still closed. That means I don't have any queries left to answer. If you've sent me a query anytime in the past year you should have an answer. If you haven't received an answer the letter was lost in some way or another and you should re-query after September 6.
The weird thing about closing to queries is that for some reason it gives me the freedom to request more proposals. I find that as I’m reading queries and the numbers in my inbox actually go down (instead of stay stagnant) I am requesting more partials than I have all year. I've been finding time to get to those too and at this point have roughly 20 left together. Some date back to June, the rest are from July and August.
