Well, from this agent's perspective, things have not only NOT slowed down this week, but have actually been super-de-duper hectic. Seems editors don't have any qualms asking for material before a holiday. Has made for some long days over the weekend, but you won't hear me complaining.
Signed a literary ghost story, started the marketing yesterday, and received a full request already. Wowza, that is a cool feeling.
We are out of office soon, but work will not slow down much for us. Plenty of chapter and manuscript submissions to peruse.
Ever been to Jacket Flap? Great place to find information on publishers, agents even. Try it out--
