Hi gang, I'm pretty much caught up on queries, so time for a #MSWL thread:

Firstly, middle-grade! Adventure, suspense, quirkiness, heart. @marinacohen, @Qsosnaspear, @anndeeellis, @cmheidicker, @josephinewrites, and @jerameykraatz are some of my MG people, and I'd love to work with more brilliant humans like them. #MSWL

Okay so The Descent has everything on my #MSWL for 2019: complicated, dark female friendships, survival, suspense, and a dash of the supernatural. *grabby hands*

#MSWL keep the psychological suspense coming, especially with unreliable narrator. Biggest hurdle with this is keeping reader in dark, finding too many that are easy to guess. Please thrill me!

If you've resolved to write a book in the new year, I'd love to see it. Here's what I'm looking for:

Inspirational romantic suspense 55K words. High danger and drama. Sweet and satisfying romance. Low sensuality. Intriguing hooks and secrets.

I think cold cases are interesting. Would like to see more of them incorporated in the suspense submissions I see. #MSWL

Goals for 2019 inspired by @NaomisLitPix & @SoCalledYALife
- Stop using "I think" so much
- Help the Agents of @bookendslit achieve their goals
- Rep more psychl suspense & women's fiction--especially diverse & own voices to my list. #MSWL

I'll just add this to my #MSWL since it sounds like my kind of #mystery #thriller #suspense, or maybe even quirky #romance or #wf. --> Human heart prompts Southwest flight to return to Seattle apnews.com/3e2217bb190c49…

The first few eps of #marvelousmrsmaisel have put me in the mood for a historical novel set in Paris... BUT I want it to have suspense/mystery elements, and lean literary in style. Universe, halp?! #MSWL

James McGowan @jamerrson · 12 Dec 2018

In Mystery, Tana French is my favorite. I’d love mysteries with writing elevated to her level, but really I’m looking for ANYTHING in mystery. From procedurals to regular old mysteries, psychological thrillers. Suspense like Susan Furlong!(Excluding spy books, please). #MSWL

Drooling over some recent deal announcements over here at @bookendslit Congratulations to all authors, agents and editors. I would love to see more fiction with dogs, especially suspense/mystery/thriller #amquerying #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 11 Dec 2018

I'm also seeking upmarket and literary fiction along the same lines I've outlined above. Suspense, mother/child stories, stories of women and the challenges they face. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 11 Dec 2018

I'm also looking for more women's fiction. I'd like mother/child stories (this works in suspense too) and LGBTQ mother/father stories. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica

As the year comes to an end and queries slow I start to think about what I'd like to see come 2019. #MSWL.

I'm still looking for domestic suspense and thrillers, aka psychological suspense. I'd especially like stories featuring women in situations that aren't classic husband/wife stories. #MSWL

Melanie Fried @Melanie_Fried · 8 Dec 2018

#mswl: historical (1900s), romcom, immigrant stories, diverse voices, high society, light suspense or speculative hook, campus setting, southern, complex female friendships, family dramas, gothic, nostalgia. Upmarket with commercial hook. Agented only.
