Submission Call: Mysteries featuring unreliable narrators (but more "Night Film" than "Gone Girl"), scavenger hunt/codes/clue-laden narratives, the same mix of humor/darkness and awesome ladies at work as Killing Eve #MSWL #submissions #mysteries #thrillers #YA

If there's any YA out there framed around the circumstances of Beware The Slenderman Documentary, I am ALL ears #mswl

The herbalist shop on the way to the gym made me think #MSWL!

Hannah Bowman @hannahnpbowman · 2d

I want, like, a really beautiful classic-style fantasy with a quest in it. “You will see rare beasts and have unique adventures” (Auden). #MSWL

“In romance, I prefer there to be something more than “will they get together”—maybe they save the town/kingdom/galaxy?” @kurestinarmada #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

And as always, I'm most eager for underrepresented voices across all categories I represent. By underrepresented voices, I personally mean writers from marginalized communities that are not well represented in publishing, including multiply marginalized writers. #MSWL

Lauren Abramo @LaurenAbramo · 3d

But not every book needs a romantic interest of any kind. Romance isn't something everyone has/wants. I love friendship stories. I love found family stories. Have a book that understands that friendship is as fraught and rewarding as any other relationship? Please query me. #MSWL

Lauren Abramo @LaurenAbramo · 3d

Speaking of romance, we need more romance that doesn't glorify persistence. Give me heroes who take no for an answer. Give me active affirmative consent. My favorite tropes are enemies-to-lovers and what I like to think of as "whoops I'm in love with my BFF." #MSWL

Lauren Abramo @LaurenAbramo · 3d

I badly want your contemporary adult romance with heroes and/or heroines who are from marginalized communities. I know traditional romance publishing has not always been welcoming, and I respect authors who prefer to self-publish, but if you want to try, I want to try. #MSWL

Lauren Abramo @LaurenAbramo · 3d

Do you have a novel or reported nonfiction on the things I can't stop thinking about, like Morgellons, the Tamam Shud case, the Voynich manuscript, Hinterkaifeck, and the Sodder children? Gimme. ESPECIALLY if it's a novel inspired by Jestyn. Please. #MSWL

Lauren Abramo @LaurenAbramo · 3d

Very actively looking for fiction by #actuallyautistic authors with autistic protagonists, especially in middle grade, especially contemporary fiction. #MSWL

I've (finally!) updated my #MSWL page. #amquerying writers, please stop on by to see what I'm looking for! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/laur…

My #MSWL includes, among other things: MG/YA fiction & adult fic/NF by authors who are: trans and/or non-binary or otherwise not cis, disabled and/or #actuallyautistic, and/or Indigenous. Including any intersections thereof, & whether or not the work focuses on identity.

*taps inbox* *shakes inbox* Nope. Still not many cozy mysteries in there. Send 'em over, please! #MSWL Paste query and 1st five pages in the body of email and send to: querylynnette (at) theseymouragency (dot) com. #DyingToRead #LoveCozies

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · 3d

I would love to see more MG submissions in my inbox. Realistic, historical, magical, scientific, adventurous--whatever you've got, I want to see it! #mswl
