I just finished reading all the Canadian queries we got this last round. Here are my #querystats for the final CANADIAN submission round:
~50+ submissions received.
~12+ emails asking for more info.
- 0 (zero) offers.
I’m looking forward to reading more subs from 🇨🇦 next year.
Here are some #querystats:
👉 We got 300+ submissions in 2021.
👉 Sent offers to 5 authors, signed up with 4 of them. (3 in Feb, 1 in October).
Tips: Don’t take rejections so personally. Don’t call us gatekeepers. Write a query letter. Follow guidelines. Be patient. Good luck!
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!
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.
Since we’re nearing the end of the year, I thought I’d share some 2020 #querystats!
This year I’ve received (so far, I’m open to queries and still receiving more every day) 2,931 queries through QT. I’ve also received queries through email (mostly requests/referrals)...
Happy August! Here's a few #querystats for July:
Queries received: 676
Full requests: 2
Offers of rep: 1
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. 😬
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.
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.
