OK, I checked the threads and didn't notice anything so.....has anyone ever heard of or had dealings with Jenny Bent of Trident Media? She's requested a partial of my chick lit. any info would be helpful, thanks.

I had a tiny bit of dealings with Jenny Bent myself. Sent her a paper query, heard back from it about 4 months later. Sent the partial, and then her assistant (who is super nice) contacted me and asked me to rewrite the partial. I did, and sent it off, along with the full manuscript (per their request). A couple of months later, I got a response saying that Jenny really liked it, but her list was pretty full and my story was a bit 'darker' than what she would like to represent, so she passed me to another agent in house.
The other agent asked for rewrites as well, and then, unfortunately, passed on my brilliance. But the minor dealings I had with Jenny (mostly with her assistant) were that she is a super-nice lady...just busy.
Good luck! Hope this helps you with trying to figure out response times.
Just to clarify, there is a Trident in D.C. that is not reputable, and a Trident Media Group in NYC that is very reputable (I'm a client of theirs and couldn't be happier).
