Mystery

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · 12 Sep 2018

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...

Susan Velazquez @susannprogress · 12 Sep 2018

I also want to add that I'm open to all kinds of historical fic--thrillers, fantasy, mysteries, women's fic, YA, etc, etc. I JUST LOVE BEING IN A DIFFERENT TIME PERIOD. #mswl

3. #MSWL mysteries! thrillers! 1st book I sold was a mystery. Before Sookie Stackhouse I was selling mysteries for @realcharlaine & in an alternate universe the early mysteries I sold would have taken off more than the early sf/f I sold & I'd be a hotshot mystery agent

If I could manifest ONE book onto my desk, it'd be a thoughtful look at issues of race and class in the American South...wrapped up in a domestic noir or Tana French-y mystery. A tall order, I know! But one of y'all has to be writing it, right? #MSWL

For adult fiction, I’d love cozy mysteries with a unique spin. Send me dark fantasy, epic fantasy…actually…just send me all the fantasy!!! I’d also like sci-fi with a science slant instead of aliens or a Star Wars remake. I’d love more #ownvoices & #diversity too. #MSWL 3/4

@BookEndsJessica What kinds of crime stories interest you?

Replying to @Brent_Dragoo

I'm most interested in mysteries/thrillers/suspense/domestic suspense/thrillers-- anything with a female protagonist. I'm not usually a fan of the spy thriller or international thriller, although I would love more international suspense/mystery. #askagent #MSWL
