I am so thrilled to join The Bent Agency as a literary agent!
Writers, send me all* your books!
*Specifically good ones that fit the linked criteria. Bonus points if they include mighty girls, dogs, sisters, baking, or magical happenings.
Rebecca Raskin @RJ_RaskinSome days, the only thing that keeps me going is that one day an agent will send me Soul of an Octopus but for sharks.
Just a reminder that I want ALL of the non-fiction about sharks #MSWL
I'm not usually interested in WWII stories, but this story, either nf or fictionalized, is definitely on my #MSWL: Freddie Oversteegen, Dutch resistance fighter who killed Nazis through seduction, dies at 92 wapo.st/2QBg2jf?tid=ss… Also, may Freddie enjoy heaven
Nonfiction kid lit writers! We’ve seen a ton of PB biographies acquired over the last year or so—the market is ready and open to fresh takes on PB nonfiction. Think outside the biography box! And after you do—send me your stuff :) #MSWL
Little late to #MSWL today, but I'd love for some agents to send some illustrated, quirky, pop culture adult nonfiction or some lighthearted, contemporary MG & YA with some strong nerd culture flavor! (I've been itching for some cosplay/comic con/food competition stories.)
Dipping out of sabbatical for #mswl!
First, I’d love to see more nonfiction. Especially interested in ecology/conservation & American history through the lens of marginalized people.
I’m also on the lookout for big-hearted, voice-driven middle grade—with plenty of humor, obv.
It's #MSWL day! Send me your voice & character driven stories about the immigrant experience, nonfiction projects with a super cool hook, super duper deadpan or dark humor, international mythology, mental health. Books that make the world a lil nicer. #MG #YA #PB
As it’s #MSWL day, I’d like to find several things in my inbox: hypnotic family saga(multigenerational ); psychological suspense with wit and insight; love story with big emotional twists. And any truly platform driven non-fiction. Send it!!
Happy #MSWL Day! Any authors curious what Liza's wishing for? Here it is!
Zesty historical adventure/thriller
Literary women’s fiction about motherhood
Elegant, smart spy novel by someone in the intelligence community
Narrative nonfiction about a turning point in history
Hey, it's #MSWL day! I've got my page over on the MSWL site (link below) and even though my inbox and to read pile are overflowing, I can say I'd love more comedy, narrative nonfiction, and travel writing. manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/dara…
I could spend ages thinking about #MSWL day so I will just be succinct: in fiction still looking mainly for smart SF/F with a fresh hook, especially by/about ppl from marginalized POVs. In nonfic: ppl w/established platforms in pop culture/media, humor, social politics, history.
