Publishing Pulse for January 3, 2014

Happy New Year from QueryTracker! And if you're in the northeastern United States, stay warm.

New At QueryTracker:

Congratulations to our newest success stories, Matthew Adams and Alexa Donne!

This week we've added one agent to our database and updated eighteen agent profiles (that's not a joke). You can see how quickly things change in this industry, so please make sure you double-check every agent's website or Publisher's Marketplace page before sending your query.

If you're a QueryTracker premium member, then you can be notified whenever an agent or publisher profile is added or updated. If you're not a premium member, you can just check for yourself.
