Very brief updates:
Queries: I am - more or less - caught up on e-queries through September 1st (and in most cases, all the way up through September 17th). Some of you may have noticed that my turnaround time has improved significantly. Being able to read email on the Palm Centro while I'm commuting has drastically increased my productivity; I read and respond to an average of 35 queries on my daily subway commute. Not bad! If your query doesn't contain funky formatting, I can download it onto my Centro and take it with me. But queries with funky formatting or overly long queries don't translate well on the Centro so I wait to read those queries at home, thus the delayed response times to some of you. (A smart person would have put two and two together by now and come to the realization that, yes, I spend more time underground in the subway than I do in my own apartment. Tragic!)
So, if you've queried me before September 1st, and did not receive a response, it's possible I didn't see your query. Either that, or your query came with an unsolicited attachment and was discarded without being read. Feel free to to re-query; make sure you have no attachments that I did not specifically request. (Graphic novel queries, as always, being the exception - please refer to my submission guidelines.)
Partials & Fulls: Mea culpa! Very behind! I've had a lot of client reading to do, and that always takes priority. I'm getting through these slowly but surely and hope to have a response back to everyone from before September 1st by the end of this weekend.
World Peace: Well, chocolate may help. I'm not sure about this one.
Fringe: Nothing can save this show. It is utterly dreadful. Best to avoid at all costs and Netflix old X-Files episodes.
