STATUS: Vacation time!
What’s playing on the iPod right now? CHRISTMAS WRAPPING by The Waitresses
Happy Holidays to all you blog readers. The agency officially closes today and won’t reopen until Wednesday, January 2, 2008.
I won’t be blogging again until the new year, but then I’ll be back and in rare ranting form!
Here are the stats for 2007:
foreign rights deals done (and that includes one pre-empt and one auction)
number of new clients
estimated number of queries read and responded to (and yes, that is up from last year)
full manuscripts requested (I miscounted the other day)
number of projects currently on submission
major motion picture deal
new deals for previously published clients
deals for new clients (4 of which were debut authors—as in not previously published)
number of copies in print for my bestselling title this year
number of New York Times Bestsellers
number of holiday cards sent
number of Starbucks eggnog chai consumed in the last week
number of late nights reading on the couch with Chutney
number of great days loving my job
Have a safe and happy New Year. I’m out!
