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
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.
#MSWL. Always looking for great adult fiction, e.g. Southern Gothic, medical romance, romantic comedies, Up Lit, domestic thrillers, historical fiction, women’s fiction, mysteries and cozy mysteries. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'll send out some more in-depth #mswl tweets next week, but in the meantime, two things I'd really love to see more of in my inbox are dual timeline narratives and crime / mystery novels, historical or contemporary. Send 'em!
Tara Tsai @TaraTsaiWritesMy mother-in-law was telling stories of how she had to accompany her sister on match-making dates in Hong Kong when she was a kid. Dim sum with the couple and all the females in the family. Is there a historical romance like this, especially own voices? I would love to read this!
Omg please someone write this for me #mswl
Victoria Aveyard 🤶🏻 @VictoriaAveyardSome of mine are a great slow-burn OTP, luxury, villains with excellent motivation, competent, snappy women who don't apologize, historical setting, and/or several major explosions.
Andrea Walker @_AndreaWalker_I’d love a #PB that’s a lyrical exploration of the stars, moon, and/or Mars.
A #MG at space camp.
Or #YA Historical in a town close to the Kennedy Space Center during the Apollo program.
Nonfiction- anything and everything space
#MSWL for 2019
In YA, I’m dying for a
- twisty psychological thriller
- dark sister story
- glimmering fantasy that’s grounded in reality
- contemporary witch story
- historical fantasy
I’m open to most things in YA, so if you think we’d be a good fit, query the agency! #MSWL
