New Year, Submissions Update

2021 was quite the year, but I don’t have to tell y’all that. I didn’t get as many posts up as I wanted, nor did I get as much reading done as I had planned. I only made one offer of representation, which I lost to another agent. But the year was not quiet for me. I was swamped for the best reason. My clients have been super prolific and successful, and it has been a chaotic whirlwind of joy to partner with them. And although I had planned on re-opening to queries at this time, that has changed as I am going out on parental leave this spring. Yes, we’re having a pandemic baby! So unfortunately I will not be open to queries until late summer, perhaps even until 2023. I do appreciate your patience and understanding, and please know I am eager to be open to new clients, I just want to be confident that I will be able to give the time and energy that they deserve.

In other book news, we did manage to install a Free Little Library, which I’m rather proud of. My talented partner built it, and I filled it. It’s been quickly put to use, and now half the books in there have been donated by random people passing by. I love sneaking one of my clients’ books in there every so often and seeing them disappear.

May you all stay safe and well!

    Congratulations on soon becoming a mother! I have 3 grown sons, and they give me the spice, richness, and flavor of the best gumbo. Take care. (Your Free Little Library looks both wise and welcoming).
