#querystats for April 2020!:
Total Queries Addressed to Me: 201
Total Requests: 14
Unread Requests: 55
It's been very interesting to see trends in query numbers based on stats, I'm curious if people find themselves finding more or fewer queries because of Current Events?
#querystats for March 2020!:
I had mentioned in our Ask PSLA chat on Monday that I was seeing fewer queries than usual and after reviewing, that is absolutely true:
Total Queries Addressed to Me: 217
Total Requests: 11
Unread Requests: 41
It's that time again! January 2020 #querystats. Somewhat of a short month as we reopened to queries on the 6th, but I still found some amazing gems in my inbox this month!
Total queries (addressed to me): 415
Total requests: 17
Total requested ms in the to-read queue: 79
Happy HollZABÉs ⛄️🌲❄️ @ZREllorMy 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
#querystats the oldest query is from Ocotber 12th. Just requested more manuscripts so that submitted number is going higher but the oldest one is from August 29th. Slowly but surely. Gotta break for lunch now. Then coming back.
As promised, these are my #querystats for October 2019
-312 queries (addressed to me) received - not inclusive of conferences
-16 manuscripts requested - again not inclusive of conferences
-Currently 41 manuscripts in the To Read queue
It's been a really busy summer so even though these look like low numbers, please know that I am behind but still in there. #querystats #queryupdate Oldest Query is May 25; oldest full is Feb 4th or April 1 depending on who you ask.
Bumbling Gardenista @BumblingGarden@NaomisLitPix Omg. That’s like rejecting Chris Hemsworth for a first date... 🤪
An author needs to feel like *I* am the right match for them as much as I do. When I lose one, it does hurt (VERY much so!), but I'm glad they are confident in the direction they've chosen. I want the best for them+book, even if that best is not me. #askagent #querystats
Naomi Davis @NaomisLitPix#askagent of the 189 full manuscripts I've requested this year from QueryManager, I have signed 12 authors.
Also, #querystats - I SIGNED 12 of these. I OFFERED representation on 14. Agents get rejections too!
