How about a few #querystats this morning? I was open to queries 7/1-8/31, & in those two months I received 908 queries. I currently have 61 unread, 12 in the maybe pile, & 3 fulls to read (2 unfortunately much older than July). I made 3 offers of rep & signed 3 new clients!

Happy August! Here's a few #querystats for July:

I currently have a few unread queries & 7 full manuscripts, & my goal for the month is to get through them all. Inbox zero for September! Wish me luck. 😬
