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 - 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
