I spent many years not logging query data, but my 2021 goal is to be more organized.
Some #querystats: so far in 2021 I have received ~600 queries addressed to me.
I have requested 79 manuscripts to date (as of this wk).
I have offered rep to 1 slush pile project.
A newsworthy announcement: I am caught up on queries. Yes, you heard that right. Fully caught up. Requests to go out shortly. I take your submissions very seriously & read every single one that's addressed to me (yes, even those addressed to Carley Walters 😏). #querystats
Carly Watters @carlywattersI request ~10-40 manuscripts a month via the slush pile. Which is about a 1-3% request rate via traditional queries #querystats
