i haven't noticed anything. january & february can be slow for me b/c groups are starting a new year & a new semester & are just starting to think about their next production (or so i think). i don't get many productions scheduled then - they're reading, deciding & rehearsing. it picks up in march.
as far as last week, it was a little slow but i did get some orders. some weeks are better than others.
ok, i just got reports of 4 orders in the middle of the day - they usually come around 6:20 in the pm - so maybe they have been away (due to the weather?) & are just now catching up. hurray - 2 of those orders are for books but the other 2 are for performances!
