Agents, I have updated my #MSWL on my site. If you have something that matches my current wishlist, feel free to send it my way! enigmaticeditor.blogspot.com/p/wish-list.ht…

#MSWL Since it's October, I would love something gothic and creepy, a dark fantasy, or a historical in #YA or #A. Or something like Into the Drowning Deep. Loved that anticipation of waiting to discover the truth followed by horror.

I'm #MSWL-ing for re-tellings (#adult or #YA) of myths, folktales, or fairytales. Always. Bring it. More. Had the chance to look at #queries and pages for an @OpAwesome6 #passorpages, and had lots to say: bit.ly/2QisRya. I encourage you all to think through m'#querytip!

Weronika Janczuk @WeronikaJanczuk · 29 Sep 2018

Still hungering for a really wonderful #thriller (any! but if you've got a female-led one, send it without hesitation!), and some really good adult #fantasy and #scifi. In #YA, don't hesitate: contemporary, boy voices, romance. Anything NEW and FRESH and EPIC. #MSWL

scientificamerican.com/article/as-ear… Infectious microbes emerging from a deep freeze, yes #MSWL please. Even better if it is a dual narrative between present and past #A or #YA

Tiffany Shelton, Witch🕯️⛤🌙 @TiffanyDiahann · 26 Sep 2018

At the request of @LifeinFiction and myself, please someone write a novel (YA or Adult) similar to Age of Adaline. #MSWL

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · 26 Sep 2018

#MSWL tragic historical romances with some basis in truth/history. Think The Most Beautiful Woman in Florence, the Violinist of Venice, or even Flight of the Sparrow. #A or #YA

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · 25 Sep 2018

I'd love to find a multi-generational story that completely pulls you. Something that really highlights the complexity of family relationships—all the love and crazy. #a #wf #ownvoices #MSWL

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · 25 Sep 2018

#MSWL I love stories where characters are expected to sacrifice themselves, like Phoenix Unbound by Grace Draven, Darkling by K.M. Rice, or A Thousand Nights. #A or #YA QueryMe.Online/QueryKatelyn

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · 25 Sep 2018

#MSWL also I want an ice age/Paleolithic story, whether straight historical or with fantasy or other speculative elements in adult and YA, preferably with at least a dash of romance. QueryMe.Online/QueryKatelyn

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · 25 Sep 2018

#MSWL Dying for a historical romance (with or without fantasy elements) with romance along the lines of A Court of Thorns and Roses in YA or adult. If you have this, please query me here: QueryMe.Online/QueryKatelyn

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · 25 Sep 2018

Rom-coms (for both #YA and #Adult) are also high on my list right now--a strong hook is a must but really I'm just looking for a wonderful, delicious escape. #R #CR #MSWL

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · 25 Sep 2018

I also will ALWAYS melt for magical realism with a strong sense of place & GORGEOUS lyrical writing ❤️ #ya #mg #wf #a #MSWL #MR

#MSWL UK Authors. Looking for Adult fiction: literary novel or short story collection. Mainly interested in writers from diverse & marginalised groups.

Disclosure: I'm a young agent new to the field. I have a strong mentor with years of experience so you'll be very supported 😊

If you have received rejections lately, you absolutely should keep querying. But if this thread made you think "Well there was that one scene..." or "well I did decide to trim that to be like Writer McFamousDude..." GO FIX IT FIRST. Send me something mindblowing. You CAN do this.

And if you read to the end (and don't hate me now), #MSWL Dynamic adult sci fi & fantasy that breaks the mold, vivid settings, powerful stakes, YA #SFF, diversity across race, gender/sexuality, neurodivergence, and mythologies I've never seen before.
Polished per above, please.

I *need* a YA adaptation of this (times a billion).

YES except also as adult fantasy about the rash decisions you made as an impetuous youth & an impetuous witch but now you're falling in love in your grumpy 30s over a magical contract you didn't think though w/lots of resigned sighs & awkward eye contact & netflix #mswl
