Slushpile Update

For the past few months, I’ve been sending out queries. But the other day, I had an emotional rollercoaster ride. At the end of January, I queried one of my top “wish list” agents.

Then she Tweeted that she wanted to do a query number analysis for the month of February. In order to do it, she wanted to get through all of her January queries in one night. I knew I was at the bottom of the pile. Not good.

She posted an update, saying she had over 300 queries to slog through. Extremely not good.

I’m ashamed to say, I checked my email every ten seconds. The night came and went. In the morning, she posted another update, saying she’d gotten through about half and requested 2.

The day wore on, and thankfully I had to work, otherwise I probably would’ve sat all day next to my email. Then the most miraculous thing happened. She requested a partial.

Later that night, she updated her feed. She plowed through over 300 emails and asked for six manuscripts. I’m still in a daze. :-)
