I will be closed to all unsolicited queries from February 1st, 2012 and will reopen on April 1st, 2012
Anyone who has sent me queries, or requested partials/full manuscripts before February 1st will still be considered.
If I meet you at a conference and request your work, it is considered a solicited query and will definitely be considered.
I am heading to South Africa (second week of Feb.) to visit family, promote literacy, meet with local publishers, educate South African writers and to help stock a library for underprivileged mothers and children at a local shelter in Cape Town.
While I am there (5 weeks), I will continue to work with my clients, read their work and communicate with editors. This will leave little time for the query pile.
Thanks for understanding.
* UPDATE: If I have requested a full or offered a revise and resubmit, please feel free to send your work to me.
