The Knight Agency

These are just a few of the things I am looking for! When it comes down to it, I’m looking for an amazing voice with a unique story—sometimes it’s the project I least expect! #MSWL

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · Sep 24

In #Adult I’d love to see more women’s fiction from underrepresented voices, projects with hints of magic (think The Night Circus), romcoms, historical fiction, and books with strong hooks that would be the perfect read for your next book club #MSWL

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · Sep 24

In #MG #MSWL I’d love to see: upbeat contemporary, magical realism, fun-filled fantasy adventures, charming mysteries with strong hooks, as well as stories that deal with shifting friend groups, activism, and projects that feature pets (especially dogs!) (3/)

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · Sep 24

as well as stories that deal w/ navigating sibling relationships (ala I’ll Give You the Sun) light fantasy with new magic systems, stories set in isolated places filled with secrets, unreliable narrators, and as always I would love to see more #ownvoices #YA #MSWL (2/)

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · Sep 24

Happy #MSWL Day! I am ABOUT to close to queries but in #YA I’d love to see fun historical (think A Gentleman’s Guide), or historical with dashes of magic, contemporary fantasy, southern gothic, projects featuring WITCHES, rom-coms w/ strong hooks (1/)

Also I’ve seen some wonderful millennial fiction projects lately just bursting with humor and heart—please keep sending those my way! #mswl #a #f #wf

The best part about a little time off is getting to read real, published books 😊 Just finished Sawkill Girls and it won’t leave me alone. I’d love to see more gorgeous fantasy horror or fantasy thrillers in my inbox—something in that vein. #ya #mswl

Keep sending those women's fiction projects and rom-coms my way! Looking for high concept & a great voice. #MSWL #WF #A

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · Apr 4

Really enjoyed ONE DAY IN DECEMBER. Would LOVE to find a project in that vein. Just a sweet rom-com that completely pulls you in. Especially one that features a diverse cast &/or is centered around a holiday/tradition other than Xmas. #MSWL #A #WF #R

I hope everyone is having a fabulous 2019! I'm now open once again to queries and CAN NOT WAIT to see what you've been working on! You can query me here: querymanager.com/query/Kristy_H… #amquerying #pubtip

#MSWL I know I've been tweeting a lot about #YA & #MG projects, but I'm still looking for some really fabulous #WF. High concept, great voice, accessible writing. Wow me with something I haven't seen before.

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · 7 Nov 2018

Also in #YA looking for historical (ish) projects. Something in the vein of THE GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO VICE AND VIRTUE. Nothing that takes itself too seriously #MSWL

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · 7 Nov 2018

I'd love to see some more fun, quirky #MG in my inbox right now #MSWL. Looking for that wonderful voice that just sucks you in

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · 1 Nov 2018

I'm a fan of fantasy, but specifically would LOVE to see more contemporary fantasy right now. Looking for something that is just fun to read--the perfect escape. Also would be open to alternate historical fantasy. #YA #MSWL

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · 25 Sep 2018

I'd love to find a multi-generational story that completely pulls you. Something that really highlights the complexity of family relationships—all the love and crazy. #a #wf #ownvoices #MSWL

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · 25 Sep 2018

Rom-coms (for both #YA and #Adult) are also high on my list right now--a strong hook is a must but really I'm just looking for a wonderful, delicious escape. #R #CR #MSWL

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · 25 Sep 2018

I also will ALWAYS melt for magical realism with a strong sense of place & GORGEOUS lyrical writing ❤️ #ya #mg #wf #a #MSWL #MR

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · 25 Sep 2018

The pumpkin candles are burning & fall is in the air! Please send me your dark & spooky #MG and #YA. Anything that will get me in the mood for the most wonderful time of the year🍂☕️🍂#MSWL
