As is my usual procedure, I’ll be closing to queries over the holidays so that I can spend time getting caught up on reading I’ve already requested, and so that I don’t come back to work in 2012 with a backlog already in place. With that said, the final day to send your query for review this year will be Friday, December 16th. Any queries received after the 16th will be deleted unread. I’ll reopen for queries on Monday, January 9th.
Jen asked on my post yesterday if I’d brought a camera on my trip to NYC, and though I have, I’m not toting it around during my meetings. Why? Because they all look like this — cups of coffee or tea or hot chocolate and conversation. There’s not all that much to see. Yes, sure, I do occasionally take meetings with editors in their offices, but think about where you spend most of your day, or what your work space looks lie — would you really want someone coming in and taking a picture of it to post on the internets?
