Ann Elmo Agency

Does anyone have any experience with the Ann Elmo Agency? I know it's listed with AAR, so it's legit, but I'm wondering if anyone has personal experience with them. Lettie Lee, one of the agents there, has expressed an interest in seeing one of my manuscripts. Thought I'd do the footwork ahead of time.

Thanks,
Tundra

Ms. Lee certainly had solid sales for the '90s, yet the most recent (going by the acknowledgments in Google Books) are for reprints; the Dummies series (which don't require an agent); and a mystery novel with iUniverse of all places. Also, AgentQuery has them listed as not accepting new clients. Weird. Hopefully, your query made the cut-off. Best of luck!

Thanks

Thanks. I suppose I'll send off the proposal for the MS and see what happens. I kinda look at it as a "what the heck" scenario. Can't hurt, might help.

Toodles,
Tundra

I can't find any sales for this agency after 2006, however Andre Abecassis (west coast rep, also AAR) is active on the conference circuit.

Don't think there ever was a site. There's still some listings, though, with email info. Ex.: http://www.writersservices.com/agent/us09/Ann_Elmo.htm
