I’m gearing up for 2020 and decided to add picture books to my wish list, but I’m also removing adult fantasy and adult sci-fi. I still want MG and YA in those (and other) genres. See my pinned tweet for deets. #MSWL #WritingCommunity #amquerying

Guess who's looking for picture books! *points thumbs at self* This girl!!! #MSWL Query me: querylynnette @ theseymouragency (dot) com. #diversity #ownvoices

Lynnette Novak @Lynnette_Novak · 1 Dec 2019

My #MSWL part 6: I want all the MG!!! Give me cute & quirky, spooky, mysterious, funny, adventurous, magical--you name it. Probably not all in the same book, though. Show me familiar done with a different twist or something new. I want UNIQUE!!! #WritingCommunity #amquerying

Lynnette Novak @Lynnette_Novak · 1 Dec 2019

My #MSWL part 5: In YA, I'd also love some creepy, scary, dark horror. This might surprise you, but I want something UNIQUE. Show me how your story is different from the rest. Give me goose bumps and keep me up at night!!! #WritingCommunity #amquerying

Lynnette Novak @Lynnette_Novak · 1 Dec 2019

My #MSWL part 4: In YA, I'd love issue books that don't feel like issue books--it's a part of the story but not the main plot. Again, I'm looking for UNIQUE. I've seen a lot of stories about coming out and mental health. Give me something different! #WritingCommunity #amquerying

Lynnette Novak @Lynnette_Novak · 1 Dec 2019

My #MSWL part 3: Adult: I would also love a near-future sci-fi with a UNIQUE angle. Make it more about science & not so much about aliens or Star Wars. Give me dark fantasy but something that hasn't been done to death. Show me worlds I haven't seen. #WritingCommunity #amquerying

Lynnette Novak @Lynnette_Novak · 1 Dec 2019

My #MSWL part 2: I NEED adult horror--dark & creepy. If you have violence/gore, there needs to be a reason for it, not just "to entertain." You don't need either to make it a killer story. Premise must be UNIQUE. Scare me with your words. I dare ya! #WritingCommunity #amquerying

Lynnette Novak @Lynnette_Novak · 1 Dec 2019

My #MSWL part 1: I'm looking for adult thrillers--all kinds, but the premise has to be UNIQUE. It can be a serial killer, but what's different? Political, medical, any kind of thriller or psychological suspense, but show me how your story stands out. #amquerying #WritingCommunity

Lynnette Novak @Lynnette_Novak · 1 Dec 2019

I always want: Adult: thrillers, horror, fantasy, sci-fi, contemporary romance, rom-com, & mysteries. YA: thrillers, horror, sci-fi, fantasy, mysteries, & contemporary. MG: Horror, sci-fi, fantasy, contemporary, mysteries, & humor. #diversity #MSWL #writingcommunity #amquerying
