Lyrical or literary stories that don't lose focus on character like THE GIRL WHO DRANK THE MOON. #MSWL (3/3)

I would really really love to find an adult upmarket, literary novel to work on. Something that will make me cry. Bonus points for magical realism. #MSWL

It's still time for some #MSWL! Submission guidelines on m'blog: bit.ly/2p3a5iO; looking for wide range of YA & adult fiction!

Want to see, esp., v. smart romance, with smart humor (a la @rainbowrowell), and any literary or women's fiction featuring a healthy marriage.

#MSWL:
Contemporary, emotional love stories
Sweeping historical fiction
Smart, elevated thrillers
Novels in verse
Picture books with STEM hooks
Anything else that’s voice driven, literary, and innovative!

#MSWL I’m drawn to high-concept commercial fiction with a literary flair! I also love a funny MG voice. I want all the YA & MG (contemporary, sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal). Yes to spooky MG and coming age. Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense, (Secular and Inspirational).

Smart, savvy, adult thrillers with a literary voice and crossover appeal. Some speculative aspect is fine. Think Tana French or Lauren Beukes. No cops. No sexual violence. Women, PoC, other marginalized folk would be ideal. #MSWL

Happy #MSWL Day! Any authors curious what Liza's wishing for? Here it is!

Zesty historical adventure/thriller
Literary women’s fiction about motherhood
Elegant, smart spy novel by someone in the intelligence community
Narrative nonfiction about a turning point in history

Cassandra Farrin @CassaCassaCassa · Sep 12

Well-researched fairy tale retellings or a literary modern retelling of a classic #MSWL

Rachel Ekstrom @EkstromRachel · Sep 12

#MSWL I LOVE literary/historical with a touch of folklore or magic like The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden or The Mapmaker's War by Ronlyn Domingue... manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/rach…

#mswl Canadian upmarket/literary fiction. Whether character or plot driven I would love to see an MC with a fresh perspective. #lf #upmarket

Melissa Danaczko @mad2034 · Sep 12

Genre-bending. I don’t rep traditional sci-fi, horror or fantasy but very open to those elements being folded into a literary novel (think Victor Lavalle, Kate Maruyama, Rivers Solomon, Helen Oyemi) #mswl

Stacy Whitman @stacylwhitman · Sep 12

I am particularly looking for MG and young YA that has strong appeal for middle school/junior high students in the school/library market. Literary quality with strong commercial hook to get kids reading. #MSWL

Weronika Janczuk @WeronikaJanczuk · Sep 12

Updated #MSWL on m'blog (bit.ly/2p3a5iO), but eager for a few things (beyond anything delightful):

*YA: literary sci-fi; anything science fantasy-esque
*thriller/crime: female-driven literary; intellectual puzzles/characters
*characters w/ intellectual, emotional gifts

#MSWL I'm on the hunt for wildly entertaining literary fiction, narrative nonfiction, and memoir, esp from underrepresented perspectives. Dying to see non-Eurocentric HF, refreshing romcoms a la #CrazyRichAsians, propulsive toxic female friendship stories--omg the list goes on--

Stephanie Sinclair @sl_sinclair · Sep 12

#mswl Canadian upmarket/literary fiction. I love a strong MC with a distinct and fully developed voice, draw me in! #lf #upmarket

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 12

I like literary, high concept sci-fi in the vein of Ray Bradbury or Philip K. Dick. Bradbury in particular was great at really character-driven, emotion-driven stories, whether they were sci-fi, horror or contemporary. That's what I'm looking for in sci-fi. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 12

Happy #MSWL Day! I'm looking for commercial, literary and upmarket fiction for both adult and YA. I love mysteries, historical, magical realism, myth retellings, novel retellings, psychological thrillers/suspense, psychological/literary horror...

Stephanie Sinclair @sl_sinclair · Sep 12

#mswl Canadian upmarket/literary fiction! What I want most out of an MS right now is a strong and complex female protagonist. #lf #upmarket
