Submissions Closed — for a little while

March 19th, 2009 • Kate

Not forever, just until I get back from my trip. As I mentioned in my live-blog yesterday:

Please consider that any queries sent between March 19th and April 1st will not be looked at until April 2nd, at the earliest. I would consider it a great kindness if you just held off on any submissions during that period, and waited until April 2nd to email them.

I will do my best in the next two days, before I leave for Europe, to get through the rest of the queries currently on my plate, after which I won’t have the opportunity to respond to anyone until April 2nd, at the earliest.

I’m also going to be taking a break from my daily updates of this blog, although I will be tweeting on the road, and those tweets do get shuffled over to Facebook as well. There may be occasional posts here, but nothing regular.

What will you be doing while I’m gone?

    I’m working on a new book! (Pause for Kate to have a coronary from the overload… not that I would want that, of course.)
    Enjoy the trip!

    While you're gone I will be waiting on pins and needles to find out about my upcoming revisions. On, and working on Current Project, of course. And enjoying spring break from grad school, which means one full week not talking about semiotics or the patriarchy or Marx and Engels.

    Same thing I do every day, Kate. Taking over the world.

  4. Julia Says:

    lol, Trish!
    I will be working hard on revising my NaNo novel & oh-so-patiently waiting for word on the subs. (ha!)

    Ha, I love your clients, Kate.
    I'm going to be going out of my mind. But at least I'm doing it in a lovely, warm place.

    Does missing your blog posts count? If not, then its revising and reading AND wishing I didn't have to sleep.

    Ditto on choocolateinspir's comments. You know that vampire thing doesn't sound too bad right now. They don't need to sleep. Okay, drinking blood, bleech, but that's a small sacrifice for all the writing I'd get done. As long as my kids weren't vampires, too. That would just plain suck (excuse the pun). I'd never get any work done then.
    So based on this news, I'm thinking it'll be at least another few weeks to hear back from an agent on my ms. Oh well. Gives me more time to finish off the knitted dish cloths I was making her in case she wants to represent me 😀
    Hope you had a great trip, Kate.
