herself off to submissions. Do not query her unless you see that
she is open to queries on her submissions page.

Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Jen Hunt of The Booker Albert Literary Agency) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.

About Jen: Jen Hunt of the Booker Albert Literary Agency graduated from the University of Reno, Nevada, with an English literature degree and an unholy fascination with Victorian literature, although contrary to popular belief, she doesn’t wear a corset. She does drink way too much coffee and enjoys watching the BBC. Another remake of a Jane Austen classic? Game on! Also happens to be a huge Bioware fangirl—when she has enough time for gaming. Follow her on Twitter and check out her blog at JenCorkill.com.

She is seeking: While Jen doesn’t want to limit herself, she is actively seeking the following:

  • Historical fiction where the characters actually fit in the era—historical romance, time travel, fantasy, inspirational, and paranormal (nothing set after the 1940s)
  • Science fiction—must include world building and well detailed environments (prefererably with a hint of romance)
  • Fantasy—same as above
  • Steampunk/gaslight/dieselpunk—also prefererably with some romantic element

“I will consider young adult in these areas but no sex, rape, or drug abuse (or abuse of any kind).”

How to Submit: [Do not query Jen without checking the updated submissions page on her website. She closed herself off to queries right about when this post went live. Make sure she is open first].

      Hi hamfisted,
      It is now 4-5-17 and same note at agency website “JEN IS CURRENTLY CLOSED TO SUBMISSIONS”. I went to her blog to mention she should pull her posting here but also her blog has no activity since June 2016. It would save writers a lot of time and effort if they would temporarily pull her posting until she’s active again.

          Hi Brian!

          Sorry about that and feel kind of foolish I didn’t see it. Maybe, only a suggestion, is a note too on the main page so writers can tell at a glance they are not taking submissions for now, or has completely withdrawn from accepting nonsolicited submissions. Just my suggestion. Thanks for the wonderful website and info you provide!

          Top of the Day!
