Query Roundup 1/18

As of 3:53 pm I'm finished with my queries and the inbox is down to zero!

I had 198 queries.

I was in a good mood and requested 5 manuscripts.

Contemporary YA Romance: exactly what I was hoping for
Fantasy: with such an interesting and unique premise
Contemporary Romance: interesting twist on a a great premise
YA Horror/Mystery: I wasn't so sure by the premise, but then I read the pages and they sucked me in
YA Fantasy: Interesting premise

There were 2 projects that sounded really great but I ended up passing on them anyway.

Contemporary Middle Grade: Just couldn't get into the writing
Adult Steampunk Romance: Just couldn't get into the writing

Five Random Things About Suzie

1. I drink so much orange soda, it's probably running through my veins. I've been known to go through a twelve pack of diet sunkist in a day.

2. I'm legitimately nocturnal (or a vampire). I will be so exhausted at two pm that I'm falling asleep standing up - it has happened before, at Six Flags no less - but as soon as the sun goes down I'm wide awake.

3. I have a gorgeous unused $6000 Reem Acra wedding dress hanging in my closet, and it showed up on my doorstep the same day my (now ex) fiance broke up with me. And thank God for that. I wouldn't have wanted to waste that dress on him.

4. Social anxiety plagues me daily. I write a script and practice in front of the mirror when I have to make a phone call, but most people who interact with me have no idea how nervous I am (or perhaps they lie) because I've worked so hard to try to overcome it.

5. I'm actually worried that I will never love my children (when I do have them in the far off future) as much as I love my dogs. I just like animals better than people - they're sweet and innocent and soft and furry - is that so wrong?
