I'm also open to illustrators. AND I'm looking for picture books, BUT ONLY author-illustrators.
(I'm sorry to PB, MG, & YA authors. I'm not capable of reading everything at this time, but hope to open more widely in the future. For now, I'm taking referrals only).
Upmarket! Something commercial w/gorgeous writing, featuring people who are not okay bc sometimes we're not okay. I want to feel the spectrum of emotions. Break my 💔, tell me the story out of order or backward. Familial or friendship stories or just a strong cast of characters.
Mystery! I still would love to see if anyone has written a Living Single/Golden Girls with a dead body.
Something outside of the Law & Order procedural (even though I'm a fan).
I'm open to speculative elements in this genre as well.
Not sure if you know this about me, but I LOVE 💗 stories. I will ALWAYS be open to adult Romance in my inbox. In ALL subgenres—contemporary, romcom, fantasy, stories w/speculative elements.
But I’m also open to other age groups & genres. Here’s a little more of my #MSWL
It's #MSWL Day, & what I'm most excited about right now is LOVE stories! Please, please gimme 'em! Also, I'd love to see thrillers in the adult & YA space. There's more–because I'm greedy like that–so check out the new manuscript wishlist page. Thanks! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/Jemi…
Happy New Year, Everyone!
I am officially open today. My links are below, which include my detailed #MSWL.
Agency Website: andreabrownlit.com/Team/Jemiscoe-…
Query Form (no email subs): querymanager.com/query/Jemiscoe
Jem is CLOSED to queries! @JemiscoeHappy December!
Reading update: I have 9 partial/fulls & 1 author w/multiples (PB sub) left in my inbox. My Dec. goal is to get responses to you before the New Year.
If you’re waiting for me, or had been waiting in the past, thank you for your patience while I’ve caught up! pic.twitter.com/TEMejtkKLh
And then…once I’m officially caught up, I will be opening again. 😂 I’ll share an updated #MSWL in the upcoming weeks.
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
