Query Roundup 1/25

It's 7:50 pm and my query box is down to zero!

There were 230 queries in the inbox today, and I'd already requested several manuscripts from Brenda Drake's Pitch Wars.

Yet somehow I managed to request 6 manuscripts. I'm either going to need to read faster or figure out how to pause time to give myself more hours in the day.

Anyway the requests this week line up like this:

Adult Women's Fiction
New Adult Contemporary Romance
YA (sounds really unique) *
New Adult Contemporary Romance *
MG Fantasy *
YA Historical Mystery *

*requested a query from #pitmad and really enjoyed the sample pages so requested the full

I've been seeing a lot of historicals lately--in YA, MG, and Adult. I wonder if this is a new trend?

Happy weekend!

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?
