On 2/18/16, I've requeried Ann with Venom. Two weeks ago, I've nudged her. Now I'm closing her out as CNR. I'll try her with Chain Reaction later this spring.

crltrdff, what a great note! It sounds like you have a strong idea. It's heartening, too, to know that you're plugging away after the rejections (especially as mine are starting to pile up too!). I know that, with your persistence and talent, you'll find the right one soon. My fingers are crossed.

Two days after submitting a query for narrative nonfiction, I heard back from Ms. Rittenberg's assistant, who wrote a most kind note that, although it's not their policy to respond to queries unless requesting a full manuscript, she was making an exception because she felt my book had merit and she was confident it would find a good home. That meant a lot, and gave me a little hope after submitting unsuccessfully to 100 agents!

I'm closing this as a non-response because it appears this agent may be out of play for some reason. I say this because if you look at her response record in QueryTracker over the past 6 months, there's no indication she's responded to any query in any way. I hope she's okay, and I'll move on.
