Also my eternal #MSWL is a project that features horses in some unique way (LOVED Sawkill Girls and The Scorpio Races). #MG or #YA

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · Feb 10

For #YA I also would love to find a fun historical with modern sensibilities (think A Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue). #MSWL

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · Feb 10

For me, it's all about voice. Sometimes it's the project that I least expect that pulls me in. If in doubt (and if it is something that I represent😀), query! #MSWL #MG #YA #Adult

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · Feb 10

For #YA send me all your charming rom-coms, your heartfelt exploration of sibling dynamics, thrillers that will keep me up at night turning the pages, and all the southern gothic you can handle. Oh & anything with hints of magic. I LOVE contemporary fantasy & light fantasy #MSWL

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · Feb 10

For #MG I would love a sweeping fun adventure, contemporary that deals with the growing pains of middle school in a sweet way, or something that is atmospheric w/ just a hint of magic (to name a few!) #MSWL

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · Feb 10

For #adult, I’m particularly hungry for commercial #WF. Give me a strong hook & upmarket writing. I’m open to MANY different genres here, but my sweet spot are stories that deal with family and/or long held secrets #MSWL

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · Feb 10

I’m ALWAYS looking for underrepresented voices and stories told through new or unique lenses #MSWL #YA #MG #Adult

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · Feb 10

I’m OFFICIALLY open to queries again!! PLEASE fill up my inbox. I’m actively taking on new clients & can’t wait to see your project! I represent #MG, #YA and #Adult and you can query me here: querymanager.com/query/Kristy_H… #MSWL #querytip

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 · 24 Sep 2019

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 · 24 Sep 2019

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 · 24 Sep 2019

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 · 24 Sep 2019

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/)

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · 2 Jul 2019

So happy to be featured in @scbwi's July newsletter! I'm actively taking on new clients--check out the interview to see what's high on my #mswl and learn more about me as an agent: scbwi.org/scbwi-exclusiv… #amagenting #querytip

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · 14 Jun 2019

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

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · 14 Jun 2019

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

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · 20 May 2019

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 · 4 Apr 2019

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
