Summer is killer for me. It feels like I’m constantly running around trying to get things done, but never actually able to get things done. Vacations and the general “slow-down of summer” can be partially to blame for this. Naturally a lot of people vacation in the summer and because of that it always seems like it takes days instead of just a day or two to get the answers you want.
The Summer Slowdown & A Submission Update
In addition to summer vacations however, there are summer conferences. RWA and Thrillerfest are the two biggies that I’ll be attending. I’m excited to go to both and will have a lot to celebrate at both, but there’s also no doubt that they’re exhausting and time consuming.
The weirdest part of all of this is that because of all the running around I’ll be doing this summer I’ll be less likely to get to submissions in a timely manner however because of all the running around I’ll also be getting a lot more submissions.
If it weren’t for a recent Kindle glitch, I’d be reading more submissions, but that’s not helping things either.
So, I’m caught up on all queries through the end of June. I’m caught up on all requested submissions through (gulp) the end of March. If you sent something that should have been answered by now please feel free to resend. If you sent material or a query in the time periods that I have not yet gotten to I thank you for your patience.
