2007 Statistics
Click here to read Literary Agent, Kristin Nelson's blog entry about her 2007 statistics. This year, she estimates she received and read 30,000 queries. Doesn't that put this business into perspective? Considering 365 days. That's roughly 82 per day, but factor in weekends and holidays and the daily average rises.

Of the 30,0000 queries, only 74 full manuscripts requested. I don't know if there were partials requested in between the query/full stage, but this really magnifies the importance of the query and how much attention should be paid to make sure it is not only is a clear picture of your work, but that it concisely and professionally makes an impact.
