Thriller

Kat Enright @katenright · 12 Sep 2018

In contemporary, I'd love to see some dark and twisty thrillers. Leave me hanging on the edge of my seat, please! #MSWL

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · 12 Sep 2018

A few uber specific #mswl requests:

-middle grade set in CA
-MG/YA featuring Jewish characters (whether they are religious is up to you)
-a book about NASA space camp
-characters with weird jobs or hobbies
-realistic, sex-positive YA
-international thriller with a female MC

Still looking at dom. suspense & psych thrillers. V competitive out there so I’m not looking for something that is overcomplicated & trying to out-do what’s on the market. I’m looking for excellent, simple (which is so much harder!), haunting/spooky/creepy writing. #mswl

Carly Watters @carlywatters · 12 Sep 2018

Dark literary mysteries/suspense/thrillers with female lead i.e. DARK PLACES, YOU WILL KNOW ME, THE FEVER, THE POWER #mswl

@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

As you know I've been on the hunt for more #ownvoices and #diversebooks in nonfiction & fiction in mystery, suspense, thriller, upmarket & literary, & women's fiction. #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 29 Aug 2018

While #ownvoices and #diversebooks have caught on in YA, I'm still struggling to see it in adult and, frankly, that's what I want more of. #MSWL My target genres right now are: literary & upmarket fiction, mystery, suspense, thriller, & women's fiction.

Lynnette Novak @Lynnette_Novak · 24 Aug 2018

Seeking: Adult: thrillers, psychological suspense, SFF, contemporary romance, rom-com, & mysteries. YA: thrillers, psychological suspense, SFF, horror, mysteries, historical, & contemporary. MG: SFF, action/adventure, mysteries, contemporary, horror, & humor. #diversity #MSWL

Jessica Faust @BookEndsJessica · 16 Aug 2018

In general, my #MSWL includes mystery, suspense, thriller, women's fiction, upmarket & literary fiction. I want more #ownvoices in all things and more #diversebooks #thursdaythoughts

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · 15 Aug 2018

Lauren [closed to queries in August] @laurenspieller

that might not seem like a ton, but when you consider how many genres I represent across multiple age categories, it is a LOT

When I open to queries again in September, I hope to continue receiving YA Fantasy (because I love it) but I also hope I see more

☻ Middle Grade Fantasy
☻ YA Contemporary
☻ Adult SFF
☻ Adult Psych Thrillers

#MSWL I want an MS set a DEF CON—the huge hacker convention held in Las Vegas. Crazy stuff must go down. High-energy. Thriller-esque. Contemporary or near-future (give me crazy attire, cool world building), YA or Adult. Save the world. Solve a puzzle. But HIGH stakes!!!

@wensday95 wants #Historicalfiction with a slight #speculative or #horror bent like Alma Katsu's THE HUNGER or Sarah Perry's THE ESSEX SERPENT
BONUS: she also wants contemp mystery/thriller where setting is integral like Jane Harper's books or Attica Locke's BLUEBIRD, BLUEBIRD.
