I'm also still looking for a wildly original #MG #fantasy a la THE NIGHT GARDENER or the SERAPHINA series. #MSWL

Hey agents! I updated my #MSWL for the New Year - I'm accepting YA, MG, and PB, looking for character-driven SF/F and contemporary stories. I'd love to hear from you, hop on the phone, or grab coffee sometime! nicolefiorica.wordpress.com/mswl/

Secondly, YA: I love genre stuff, fantasy, sci-fi, even the right historical. I'd love to see some really high-concept stand alone, too. And in all things, diverse voices, diverse stories, under-represented points of view, ALWAYS. #MSWL

2019 #MSWL: I would -love- to find strong thriller/action adventure like that of Lee Child/Robert Crais/James Rollins. More crossover fantasy like NIGHT CIRCUS.

Diana Kill @dianagill · 3d

2019 #MSWL: a fantasy or sf romance with the depth of plot, character & worldbuilding of Nalini Singh's fab books. Nonfiction like THE BUTCHERING ART. Smart, fun not-guilty-pleasure reading like CRAZY RICH ASIANS. Great YA epic fantasy (and contemporary).

It's January 15 & that means I'm now open to queries again -- and hungry to find some new talent for the new year! Send me your lyrical MG fantasy, your heartfelt MG contemp, your weird and/or witchy YA, your adult or YA romcoms, and anything else amazing. #mswl

If I missed your #IWSGPit pitch, paste query & 1st 5 pages in email. Adult: SFF, thriller, cont. romance, & mystery. YA: thriller, SFF, horror, mystery, & contemporary. MG: SFF, mystery, contemporary, & horror. #diversity #MSWL #ownvoices querylynnette (@) theseymouragency (.)com

My roommate just reminded me that American Dragon: Jake Long was a Thing, and that’s literally all I want in a YA urban fantasy RN #MSWL

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · Jan 9

For those #amquerying I remain open to queries. Genres high on my #mswl for 2019 in adult and YA include horror, historical fantasy, chilling mysteries, and tense stories about survival. In nonfiction would love some weird or fun history.

I am not an agent or an editor, so I'm just throwing it out there for writers who do humor better than me:

I would kill for a YA book that captured the tone and feeling of the late great tv show Dead Like me.

selfishly expanding this into a #mswl for adult SFF that hits that Dead Like Me sweet spot of charming sardonic & reserved w/a deep undercurrent of heartbreak & stunning empathy that will break into the main storyline without warning. high concept but make it lump in your throat

Correction #2: Middle Grade: Humor--if you can make me laugh, I'll sign you up. Literary: I've never had a Newbery-winning client and I want one. Adventure stories, grounded fantasy (but not epic fantasy), sci-fi. #ownvoices for sure. Artists, MG graphic novels! #MSWL

Ashley Hearn @AshleyHearn · Jan 4

Starting 2019 with this #MSWL: I will drop everything to read a fresh, inclusive Urban Fantasy! Give me a city with magic woven into each building and street!

Brian Geffen @Brian_Geffen · Jan 4

5/ #MSWL: Fast-paced, high-stakes YA fantasy, specifically with unique magic systems and fresh worldbuilding. I'm particularly attracted to lyrical prose, and recent YA favorites include Leigh Bardugo's King of Scars and Laini Taylor's Muse of Nightmares.

Brian Geffen @Brian_Geffen · Jan 4

4/ #MSWL: I would love to find more MG fantasy that combines commercial, high concept plotting with gorgeous prose. Books packed with action, adventure, heart, & friendship that tow the line between literary and commercial. Wildly original worldbuilding, always!

Jim McCarthy @JimMcCarthy528 · Jan 2

I am ALWAYS looking for YA fantasy or sci-fi. It’s not even out yet, but Swati Teerdhala’s stunner, The Tiger at Midnight is EXACTLY the kind of high-stakes, thrilling novel that I tumble head over heels for. #MSWL

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · Jan 2

#mswl 2019: YA Paranormal: I want a big vampire or werewolf book or paranormal series that feels new and different and unlike what we've seen before. And YA SFF unlike anything we've seen before. (5/13)
