From a GREAT post by Anne Ursu on Tumblr.
I recently sent an email to the good folks over at AgentQueryasking them to update my listing on their site. They got most of the details correct — name, preferred method of contact, email address, special interests — but under genres represented they included “literary fiction.”
Curious about the breakdown in queries I receive? I hope so, otherwise I’ve wasted a huge amount of time tracking these things by the numbers! Nathan Bransford shared some of his recent stats the other day, and inspired me to do the same. So, at the time I read Nathan’s post, I had 157 unread emails in my query folder. A few of them turned out to be misdirected, or better sent to other folders to deal with, which left me with 151 queries.
