Last year at this time I posted about a certain agency giving us writers a query holiday for a month, which involved sending a portion of a manuscript to them without the query letter step. That agency has since gone out of business. I am not implying that one had anything to do with the other.
This year, I’m taking a query holiday. I will patiently wait to hear back about any open queries, but I will not send out anything new until the new year. New year, fresh start. Not to mention the lighter stress during the holidays, more time to concentrate on WIP (first draft completion is now in sight), and more time to play with the boys and their new toys.
Join me in this query-free holiday season, or tell me why you think this is the perfect time to query in the comments.
