As of 6:00 pm I've finished reading this week's queries.

There were 193 queries in the inbox this week.

I'm seeing a lot of science fiction and a lot of ghost stories in my queries. I'm certainly not opposed to either, but I think it has to feel new and different.

I requested 4 manuscripts!

MG fantasy: query was a little vague but still caught my interest. Pages are good!
YA fantasy: sounds fabulous
Science Fiction: It's unclear if this was YA or adult, but either way it looks good.
YA contemporary: Sounds awesome.

So as you'll notice there are some clear patterns to my requests. Almost all of my requests could be explained with "great premise in the query and I love the pages."

On top of my wishlist:
More adult manuscripts. I could go for a good contemporary romance (and I'll even look at new adult contemporary romances). Or women's fiction! Or magical realism. Anything really. I'd love to find another great adult project.
As of 4:32 pm on Saturday, all of my queries have been answered. I had 246 queries in my inbox.

I requested 1 manuscript.

YA fantasy that sounds unique and amazing.

I regretfully passed on 2 manuscripts.

Another YA fantasy that had a really cool premise, but I just wasn't grabbed enough by the writing.
Adult romance with science fiction elements. Really cool premise, but I wasn't sucked into the voice in the first pages.

This is a new one for me, but--don't admit in your query that you don't actually read or enjoy books.

Along those lines, remember that the best way to present yourself is in a professional manner and as someone who will be lovely to work with. Agents want to represent good books, yes, but we also want to forge a great working relationship with our writers. Even if you are bitter, disillusioned, or desperate (It's a tough industry, I get it), try your best not to show it.
