7 to 8 weeks turnaround
« on: October 10, 2013, 10:41:47 AM »
An agent told me that they're in a 7-8 week turnaround. Can anyone tell me what exactly does that mean?
I have an idea but am not sue. Thank you.

Generally, that means that they need 7-8 weeks to respond to either queries or submissions. If it's a submission, I would give them an extra 2-3 weeks before inquiring about the status.
