letters from the query wars – holiday edition

# of queries read this week: 56
# of partials/manuscripts requested: 0

As I mentioned last week, I am currently closed to new queries until January 15th.

However, I am still continuing to review, albeit somewhat slowly with my sprained wrist and reduced typing speed, those that were already in the queue. I’ve appreciated people’s support and will, no doubt, continue to be thankful for their patience.

I’m seeing many of my colleagues mention that today is their last day officially at work until the New Year. Our agency is closed from December 24th until January 4th to celebrate the holidays (and probably get in some reading). In January there will be the now-annual query stats of the year, among other things.

Happy holidays…. And in the spirit of the season…..

  1. Take time to enjoy the holidays, to relax and take time off. Rest your wrist and your brain, so that when 2010 arrives you’ll be ready.

  2. Thank you. My holidays are now complete.
    It’s the “even death may die” that gets me. Right. *here*.

  3. happy holidays 🙂

  4. Happy holidays to you Jennifer. I’ve become quite a blog viewer and commenter during the last six months and your blog is one of my favorites. I enjoy hearing your honest and sometimes slightly acerbic tales from query land (occasionaly hell). As a writer I’ve learned a lot from your posts and I appreciated the time you put into reaching into the blogospere.
