letters from the query wars 2.1.2013

I was a little surprised to realize just how long it had been since I did a query post. So I’m going to just take this opportunity to post the stats so far for this year and then hope to keep up with them going forward. I’ll also try to include some more tips and insights from the query review experience. In any case…. for now….

(And I lost a little ground on response time. Things were a bit thrown off by a high wind storm that caused a power outage leading to less time to address queries, among other things. Here’s hoping next week goes more smoothly…)
