She posted October query stats on Twitter, so I take that to mean she's gone through them and requested what she wanted.

Barnaby, what Patrick said. I've been shopping three adult thriller manuscripts around to agents for a couple of years. Some other authors have also posted their titles with their comments too--just down below. It's helps me differentiate the three of them when I'm querying (or requerying them again). Venom is one of my thriller titles that I've been querying for 9 long years.

barnabyhazen,
The author likes to include the title of her book with her comments. Venom is one of her titles.

You’re not alone. I hear from a lot of people who wonder what it means.

Can someone please tell me what "venom" indicates on these comment code pages?
