CLOSED TO UNSOLICITED QUERIES & off to AFRICA

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to take a moment to let you know that I am now closed to submissions until further notice.
What am I going to be doing while closed?

Well, I plan on responding to the queries, partials and fulls that arrived in my inbox prior to December 1st and I will still accept nudges and communications from writers I have already corresponded with.
Thank you in advance for understanding. 

I wish I did not have to close, but I am going to be in Africa and really need to take the time to respond to the talented authors who have waited patiently to hear from me. I will be out of the country for six weeks, but I will still be working hard for my clients as well as for South African writers, readers and librarians. I intend to promote literacy, educate writers about the American publishing market and answer questions about how to land an agent. I also hope to raise some money for the local libraries.

Alice Hoffman said "Books may well be the only true magic," and I am so excited to be able to open the world of NY publishing to a country filled with talented authors just waiting to be guided in the right direction. I will try my best to post about our journey.

Have a wonderful Holiday season--keep writing, reading and being generous of spirit.

Best wishes,
Louise
