OK, what did I miss?
Well, I received approximately 7 million queries over the holiday weekend and my inbox is so full I can hardly bear to look at it. People, look. I don’t really believe in timing your queries and normally I’d say fire away, but I received MORE queries than usual in the past week. If you want your prospective agent to read your query while they’re not in a turkey induced food coma or, alternately, if you want to avoid giving your prospective agent a post holiday heart attack when they come in on Monday and look at their inbox I’d suggest avoiding the major holidays.
Meanwhile, in TV news, the Bachelor didn’t choose ANYONE, which shattered my belief in the possibility of finding true love on a reality TV show that involves dating multiple people at the same time. Just a stunning turn of events.
In other reality TV love news, Spencer and Heidi from The Hills were unengaged for 24 hours AND THE WORLD STOPPED TURNING ON ITS AXIS. Oh wait. No it didn’t. Whew.
And in big publishing news, Amazon unveiled the curiously named e-reader Kindle (because, uh, books and fire go together so well?), which I will blog about more tomorrow. And the next day. And possibly the day after that. Maybe forever. WHO KNOWS.
Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday, and in the spirit the season please feel free to share your hilarious Thanksgiving stories in the comments section.
