But this year I am too busy moving to California to make graphs.
***My numbers may be off.***
Total manuscripts, not including queries, synopses, first chapters: 107
Young adult: 73
Middle grade: 23
New adult: 6
Chapter book: 1
I'm actually stunned that things were so heavily YA this year. I felt like it was closer to 60% than 70%, and I definitely thought I worked with more NA. Technically I don't work with chapter books or adult fiction, but there were circumstances in both cases, and I'm glad I got a chance to read those projects!
Other: 13 (historical, memoir, etc.)
Nice spread of genres.
Other: 8 (sci-fi, adventure, paranormal, etc.)
Oh, MG fantasy. I'm not surprised.
The NA was all contemp romance except one mystery (yay, mystery NA!), the adult was all sci-fi, and the chapter book was fantasy.
I had the most projects in January (17), followed by a bunch of 13 project months. The lowest months were May (3--I was travelling Europe) and November (4--550K NaNo).
23 clients signed with agents.
9 signed book deals.
2 clients who signed traditional book deals in 2012 had their books come out this year.
All those numbers add up to one happy editor. Stay tuned for the launch of The Girl with the Green Pen 2.0!
