books

letters from the query wars

# of queries read this week: 124
# of partials requested: 3
genres of partials requested: mystery (1), sf/fantasy (2)

Also, requested a full YA from one author after reading the earlier requested partial.

Have now read all post queries received by the 14th, and all electronic queries received prior to the 20th. Hope to have all replies out by the end of business today on those.

Finding myself not as inspired as usual to offer commentary on the queries (perhaps it's part and parcel with winter's renewed assault on the Northeast), I will open a Q&A thread herewith. I'll only be answering questions regarding the query process, so save anything else for the next time around. Thanks.

Oh, and in case anyone missed it over on my website: http://www.jenniferjackson.org/ (LJ feed for my news page: http://syndicated.livejournal.com/jjackson_agent/ )-- the mass market version of Jim Butcher's White Night (The Dresden Files, Book 9) will be on the upcoming New York Times Bestseller List! I am so thrilled for him, and extend my thanks to the many readers and fans who have helped this series grow.
