KK Hendin @kkhendinGood morning and happy #MSWL day!
The usual reminders:
MSWL stands for Manuscript Wish List.
The hashtag is for agents and editors to use to tweet about what kind of manuscripts they're looking for in their inboxes.
(Find more at manuscriptwishlist.com)
Would love a great legal thriller! #MSWL
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
Brent Dragoo @Brent_Dragoo@BookEndsJessica What kinds of crime stories interest you?
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
Authors and agents! I just updated my MSWL editor page
this is what I'm looking for *in general* and how to submit
I will tweet more specific wishes for #MSWL Day on 9/12
See you then! 😊
I will not be able to spend a lot of time in #PitMad, but I am open to queries and hungry. #MSWL: mystery, suspense, thriller, women's fiction, upmarket & literary adult fiction. Query me here: querymanager.com/query/Jessica_…
If I missed your #PitMad pitch, paste query & 1st 5 pages in email. Adult: SFF, thriller, cont. romance, & mystery. YA: thriller, SFF, horror, mystery, cont., & historical. MG: SFF, adventure, mystery, cont., & horror. #diversity #MSWL querylynnette (@) theseymouragency (.) com
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.
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
Lauren [closed to queries in August] @laurenspiellerthat 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.
