The July Monthly Round-up

Well, we're a few days late, but here's the Monthly Round-up:

In July we...

...received 39 queries, rejected 4

...received 11 sample chapters, rejected 12

...received 1 proposal, rejected 2

...received 6 manuscripts, rejected 0

Currently we have on-hand to read...
...52 eQueries

...8 sample chapters

...5 proposals

...at least 8 full manuscripts.  I say "at least" because some are by current clients and may be revisions or may be under revision.  Needless to say, we have a lot of reading to do!

And in July and August we welcomed three new clients to the list including, Mark Mamone, Rus Wornom, and Shannon Phillips.  (See?  And you thought we never took on new clients.  We do!)
Our oldest sample chapter/proposal is dated June 11th so, if your submission was sent after that date, know that your work is still being considered.

Mr. Z, I just tried to send you a query via your form. I received this message.

There is no form with this name or may be the form is unpublished, Please check the form and the url and the form management

Michelle: Right above the form, it says, "Please note: If you complete the form below and receive a "form not published" error, then your query was not sent. Please resubmit."

Because of all the different types of browsers in the world, we can't guarantee the form will work with all of them. This appears to happen about 1 out of a 100 queries.

MR. Z,

Thanks for the response. I did resubmit and I received the same message. 1 out of 100... just my luck!

That's a lot of reading!

Michelle: My guess is that it is a browser issue. We do accept snail mail paper queries and, in fact, we tend to respond to those in a day or two, whereas with the eQueries, we often take quite a bit longer. So send us one in the mail!

It's in the mail!
