I've noticed a lot of agents saying they won't be reading queries for the next two weeks, and to wait to query until January.
In fact, your chances of a prompt reply are greater now than they will be come January.
Cause I'm not on the phone selling to editors for the next two weeks. I'm probably not closing any deals (although Moonrat, feel free to call on Wednesday with an offer, I'll be here!)
Query me first, and get rejection out of the way!
Query me first, and start the new year with a request for a full!
Query me now, and get an answer pretty quickly.
Since my goal is to clear my inbox by the end of the year (300+ emails pending now) I'll be reading feverishly.
Here's your chance!
