I'm very excited that after being closed to queries for over a year, I'll be opening back up tomorrow🎉I'm particular eager to grow the adult side of my list. MSWL is here: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/kris…
I'd love to see some more #adult projects in my inbox. #speculative, #contemporary, #historical, #romcom--I'm open to almost ANYTHING, but looking for a great hook & great voice. Something that I'll have hard time putting down #mswl #a (still also looking for #MG & #YA)
Loving #folklore on this rainy day (and that music video) Would love to find a project that embodied these vibes (& for those using it rn to fuel you through your WIP, send it my way when it’s ready. I’ll wait 🥰) #mswl #ya #a
Thanks @MSWLMA for having me on! Check out this episode as we discuss easy mistakes to avoid in your 1st page(s), everyone’s favorite term: high-concept and, OF COURSE, the upside to less than glam NYC apts 😂 #mswl #revtip #querytip #amwriting
Katherine Locke @BibliogatoThere are so many good non-Holocaust Jewish pitches!!!
AGENTS. EDITORS. Please please try acquiring and promoting books that aren't just about mass Jewish death. Jewish kids AND non-Jewish kids deserve to see Jewish people as heroes of their own story, not just against Nazis.
Loading my kindle w/ some amazing projects for a little weekend submission reading. Looking forward to the mini-escape that each will bring! Keep those #MG #YA and #adult queries coming! #MSWL #querytip
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
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
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
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
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
