In my inbox I'm seeing a lot of queries for superheroes and noir. That's not good or bad one way or the other = I'm just making an observation.

Interesting #QueryStats for March (not April as I'm nowhere near through April submissions)...
80 sample pages read (from roughly 2,000 queries)
28% of those 80 were middle grade submissions
82% of those MG submissions open with protagonist speaking to an adult.

25,000 queries read in 2017. The vast majority were for young adult fantasy followed by adult fantasy and then contemporary young adult. #querystats

#QueryStats = read 97 queries today and passed on 95 of them. 17 (so far) responses of, "could you please provide feedback?" #agenting

#QueryStats - also, huge uptick in queries for adult science fiction. Woo HOOO! *fist bump* sci-fi!

#QueryStats - interesting! YA fantasy is outpacing contemporary YA in queries right now (for first time in years!)

#QueryStats = I calculate that I spent 4% of last week reading queries. That's pretty normal. #agenting

#QueryStats = tons of submissions this month for happy/upbeat/positive contemporary MG and YA written by elementary teachers. :)

#QueryStats = huge rush of adult SF queries in which protagonist is Artificial Intelligence. #interesting #queries
