I have responded to all queries sent to me prior to July 8th that followed submission guidelines. I apologize for not getting completely caught up before I take two weeks off, but I’ll do my best to get caught up again quickly afterwards. Note: if you queried Renee, she’s working on a different timeframe, but will continue to work on them as well. Stay tuned to Twitter for further updates.
Of the many books I listed before the holidays, some I didn’t get to, some I finished, but only one did I start and put down less than halfway through, unmotivated to continue by what I felt were cold characters and a narrative style that seemed unduly remote. I didn’t love making that decision. I’ll stop reading a manuscript halfway through with nary a second thought if I know I don’t love it, but that’s also about making a decision to represent a project. But a finished book?
