    [Agency] Pen & Ink Literary (Anne Bohner)

    Anyone have any experience with Anne Bohner? Just saw her and her agency appear on my super new-fangledy agent spottin' software.

    My Website. Twitter.

    Never heard of her... But I figured what the hell, I can always reject her later on down the line, a query isn't likely to go amiss and it would be fun to reject an agent rather than the other way around for a change.

    How did you find her anyhow?

    Also... There's a good part of Saskatoon? Would that be the enclave of ex-Saskatoonies living in Vancouver? (I understand the Saskatoon consulate is considered 'officially' Saskatoon soil.)

    PW confirms the claim on her website that whe was an editor at Bantam Dell and NAL (30 deals announced between Oct 2002 and May 2008- almost all of them at NAL). Nothing's posted in her role as an agent, yet, but I don't find anything about when she opened her doors. The agency may be shiny new?

    Well she's fast on the response time. Says she only handles Young Adult that skews older and adult stuff whereas my book falls in the gap between YA and MG (and normally I try to sell it as MG because it fits better there).

    Nice response but I doubt she'll be personalizing all her rejections after she starts to get a flood of queries.

    I've sent a query to her just now for the hell of it. She's asking for exactly what my book is so here's to hoping *tips glass in cheers*

    I sent Anne a query on 6/01, and she responded by the following morning, with some very interesting questions (define the genre of fiction I write; comparisons to other authors, etc). Following my return email, she requested the first 50 pages. She's very personable and professional, and I'd love to have an agent with that kind of communication skill and response time.

    Requested the first 50 pages today. Sent them off just now. Appreciating the fast response time.

    fingers crossed

    I queried her 6/17 because of her publishing background and she requested 50 pages of my romantic suspense manuscript a week later.

    I queried her a while ago because she seemed to be requesting a lot, but I got an answer a few hours later saying that my MS wasn't her thing. Figures!

    Requested 50 pages.. I've had two others reject based on the pages, and one other reject on the full, so I've edited since then. Here's hoping.

    Just wanted to update on my submission. Apparently my email didn't format my 50 pages correctly and not all of it got sent to her. I'm assuming she still read what did get sent and she still requested I send the 50 pages in a word document. I'm hoping she likes it I don't think she would have requested the doc if she didn't like what did get sent to her.

    Anyone have any idea how long it takes for her to respond on a 50 page request? I'd like to know roughly how long I have to wait before prodding ^_^;

    She's so new, I doubt she has a rhythm yet. I'm sure a couple months ago when she hung out her shingle, you could expect a fairly quick reply; she has since requested dozens of partials and fulls--necessarily so, as she's trying to sign some clients--so she's probably backed up.

    A year from now, you might be able to estimate how long it usually takes her to respond. At this point, not so much.
