#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?

Total requests: 17
Total requested ms in the to-read queue: 79

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

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

#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.

Maureen Moretti @maureen_moretti · 16 Dec 2019

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.

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 23 Apr 2019

#querystats I hit query 0 so all queries have been answered. Check your spam/junk if you haven't heard back.

I do have 14 requested manuscripts now to work through, and those go back to 1/15.

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 11 Apr 2019

#querystats I have 19 queries, earliest goes back to Feb. 12th.

I have 10 requested manuscripts, 2 fulls left from #pitchwars, and I just requested 8 more. So I am going to be busy lady between client work and reading.

Carly Watters @carlywatters · 25 Feb 2019

I haven't emptied my query inbox in awhile.

No wonder I'm running out of space...

That's about 10 month's worth. #querystats

Carly Watters @carlywatters · 24 Feb 2019

I finished my #WFWA pitch day reading. Look forward to reading some great material!

For anyone interested: There were about 90 pitches and I requested material from 15. #querystats

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 11 Jan 2019

Right now I'm reading queries from 12/12/18 and requested manuscripts from 11/25/18. I've got 12 full requested manuscripts and about 250 queries. #querystats

@NaomisLitPix Omg. That’s like rejecting Chris Hemsworth for a first date... 🤪

Replying to @BumblingGarden

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
