10% had interesting pitches, but the pages didn’t connect with me. These are completely subjective passes

5% weren't for me—good manuscripts but not subjects I cared about, or styles I didn’t know how to represent

Happy HollZABÉs ⛄️🌲❄️ @ZREllor

My 2019 #querystats (#amagenting #writingcommunity) say I had a 5% request rate. Let me break that down...

50% of queries were auto-rejects. Incorrect formatting, no sense of market.

30% were good, but not great. Authors needed further development and practice to produce publishable work. Not ready for representation yet
