For some reason I seem to gravitate to stories about tigers or wolves #mswl

Jenny Bent @jennybent · 17 Oct 2018

If you have written fun, high concept women's fiction with heart and a cool hook/pitch, PLEASE SEND IT TO ME. #MSWL

#MSWL: Cribbed from a list I read on a recent #SCBWI panel, I often like books with these elements:
difficult family dynamics
people who feel like outsiders in any way
the forest

Jenny Bent @jennybent · 19 Aug 2018

Just a reminder that I'm open for queries and I absolutely love books--for kids or adults--with a supernatural bent or MAGIC of any kind. #mswl

Jenny Bent @jennybent · 17 Nov 2017

Am mostly off twitter these days (taking a break) but jumping on to say that if you are working on a graphic novel with a really cool, tough female super hero I hope you send it to me. #mswl

Jenny Bent @jennybent · 12 Sep 2017

I am closed to queries but if u have written a novel for adults featuring rich people behaving badly, pl send it to me w/ #mswl in subj line

Jenny Bent @jennybent · 21 Mar 2017

Another #mswl tweet: rich people behaving badly for adult or YA or MG.

Jenny Bent @jennybent · 8 Feb 2017

#mswl YA fiction that is *this close* to being adult fiction, if that makes any sense at all lol

Jenny Bent @jennybent · 8 Feb 2017

#MSWL anything heartwarming about unlikely friendships or an underdog saving the day

Jenny Bent @jennybent · 8 Feb 2017

#MSWL if you wrote something that you think pushes the envelope or is weird or quirky in some way please send it to me

Jenny Bent @jennybent · 8 Feb 2017

#MSWL #ownvoices fiction for both adults and teens, particularly with female main characters

Jenny Bent @jennybent · 8 Feb 2017

#MSWL books that support #therresistance particularly those featuring kickass teen girls please

Jenny Bent @jennybent · 30 Jun 2016

And I always love a good psychological suspense like the ones my clients @LORIROYauthor and @crawfordsusanh write. #MSWL

Jenny Bent @jennybent · 30 Jun 2016

I like books that are set in magical worlds or take me to a strange new place #mswl

Jenny Bent @jennybent · 30 Jun 2016

I also like anything with a very strong high concept pitch and fast pace. #MSWL

Jenny Bent @jennybent · 30 Jun 2016

Is it #MSWL today? You know what I like? Books that SURPRISE me. If u have lots of twists and turns and strange stuff in your book, send it!
