Jemiscoe Is OPEN To QUERIES! 🍷
On Monday, the 19th, I'm opening up to queries. I've updated my #MSWL here: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/jemi…
I'll be open to a lot: Illustrators, MG, YA, and adult fiction, but let me share some things I'm really like to see.
Starting today, I am going to open my query inbox just to illustrators.
In the next several weeks, I will open widely, but I want to consider the fulls and maybes I have first and then create a new #MSWL. Until then, I am currently looking for #kidlitart #illustrators.
#illustrators, I am here for you! I'd love to see your art, from PB to MG to YA.
I'd also like to see author-illustrated graphic novels. My kids love them. I love them. And I will continue to be an advocate for the fun and creativity and hard work that goes into them. #MSWL
I want an atmospheric thriller, where bodies are piling up, and the investigative search has the potential to kill, but at the last minute, there's a plot twist that no one saw coming. #ItExists #MakeItHappen #MSWL
I want a YA or Adult Rom-Com that is so cute, funny, and steamy. If yours includes an interracial relationship, I'll be your best friend! And when it comes to love stories, I am especially open to LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC. #MSWL
I want single parent stories, whether mom or dad or grandparent, that could cover themes of grief, abandonment, acceptance, or community, but ones where the character arc starts and ends at home. AND, if it's BIPOC, I want them thriving, y'all! #MG #YA #MSWL
Since I'm opening back up for queries tomorrow, I thought I'd share some--not all--of my #MSWL must-haves.
1st up, I want a pair of witchy sisters or witchy friends with ancestral magic wrestling angry restless spirits in a dark setting, like a swampy, marshy woodland.

Nivia Evans @NiviaEvansReally in the mood for something gothic as hell, full of rot and ruin, a slow-burn romance, twists and turns, and BIPOC protagonists. #MSWL
Yeah. Okay. Me too! #MSWL

SERIOUSLY, IN ALL DAMN CAPS!!! We need to see this in publishing. Please. Pretty please. Send it my way! #MSWL
Amazing #WritingCommunity, I'm closing my box on 9/1 to focus on my clients' MS, & to catch up on those that have already submitted. I will be open for conferences, R&R requests, & may peek at #PitMad. But, I'll fully open again in Oct. For my #MSWL, go to manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/jemi…
#WritingCommunity, can someone please write a Golden Girls meets Murder She Wrote with a diverse cast of characters. I want to laugh, coupled with the tension of a who-done-it, murder mystery. #MSWL #goals
