My query inbox will be closed until January 13th of 2013. That is if we live past the Mayan Calendar. In which case, I should say just in case… my query inbox is closed forevermore!
I know what you are thinking. Gosh darnit, Pam. Your box was closed all through June, and now it is closed until forevermore!? I thought you were a new agent building your list.
I am a new agent, and I will still be accepting pitches and such at conferences. I feel my list is pretty darn strong right now. I have four adult romance writers (I just signed one today I am super excited about but I’ll let her do the announcement), and six YA writers! I need to take some time and focus on these clients and their books and what they are writing next and so on and so forth.
Agenting is not the only thing I do. I have this blog, and the Bookalicious.org blog. Thankfully I have friends who are helping me manage the latter, or it wouldn’t exist. I read a lot of romance, I want to design and get some good writers on a romance blog this month or next. I want to write my book, which is how I started with my agency- as a client.
I run the agency website and take care of Laurie McLean’s two backlist e-publishing venture websites. I gave up writing for Guys Lit Wire, and I haven’t written a professional review for the San Francisco Book Review for a long time.
So I will be back in 2013, if the inevitable doesn’t happen. I am still on the hunt for that illusive MG fantasy writer. I’ll be in Houston in October, and the Central Coast in September! Good luck with your MS!
