  1. Will you be updating your conference schedule for 2014 soon?

  2. Jennifer, a query about a query.

    Do you ever accept queries about a book that an author self-published? (In this case it’s a collection of sci-fi/horror/fantasy short stories.) I would’ve sent this question to you at your agency, but I thought this might not be a bad question for a blog so that others could benefit from your response.

    Thanks for your time, and for being such a passionate advocate for science fiction and fantasy.
