    Well, she has a snippy attitude toward genre fiction and synchronized swimming teams.I don't do much swimming at all, but I do write genre fiction.

    About three years ago, she sent me a very nice, personalized rejection letter on a literary novel. That's about all I know.

    Before or after Christmas, I can't remember, she sent me a handwritten rejection. Very nice.

    Ann Rittenberg is extremely competent, connected, and basically nice. She's also busy and has pretty high standards. She has done better with my first novel than I ever thought possible.

    She appears to be a very successful AAR agent. She has $ on P&E: www.anotherealm.com/prededitors/pealan.htm
    Here's her PM page, www.publishersmarketplace.com/members/gideonse/
    A cursory search in Amazon reveals that she's no slouch boasting 8 pages of books sold by with price ranging from USD 7 to 140. Most books are averaging in the high teens / low twenties. Amazon link:

    Her website is kind of hysterical. Does anyone want to guess whether or not YA counts as "genre fiction?" I'm guessing no, but it also doesn't seem to be lit fic, so I'm not sure.

    Her website says no genre fiction, but I just checked on PM and she's sold a few mysteries in the past 2 years and a romance/women's fiction. I'm going to go ahead and query her with my mystery.

    Has anyone successfully queried this agency recently? I'm wondering about response times. I sent an equery on 6/27 and haven't heard anything. I'm assuming that's an R, but since submissions include three chapters, maybe the response times can be lengthy. Any experiences out there?
