I think I haven't mentioned what I'm looking for in a while: thrillers for adults and romance/rom-com for adults that have fresh hooks. Upmarket fiction from underrepresented perspectives. I am not open to expanding my children's list at the moment. #MSWL
I'd particularly like to see more thrillers of all sorts featuring BIPOC protagonists. (I have asked for this in the past and received great submissions, and I cannot wait to see even more.) #MSWL
Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenESeeing some great #MSWL tweets today from agents I admire. In that spirit, I'd love to share some of mine!
- MG or YA fiction with a character who might become AOC-- that spirit, that drive, that persistence would make for a great story!
- always looking for funny
- adult mystery or thriller in the procedural vein
- YA contemporary romance with a hook (leave that up to you!)
The New York Times @nytimesWith neither a ticket nor a passport, a 66-year-old woman slipped into Chicago O’Hare International Airport, sneaked onto a British Airways flight and traveled to London nyti.ms/2DZCJbi
This is a badass thriller that needs to be written. The Spy Who Grannied! #MSWL
Peter Senftleben @gr8thepeter@MelissaLaurenE LOL, I just made it up after seeing more GIRL books. But I kind of like the idea... If only I were a writer.
Melissa Edwards @MelissaLaurenEThis is not to say I'm not also into YA. Send me some romantic, swoon-worthy, crackling, cackle-inducing YA, please! #MSWL
Oh and some edge of your seat, heart attack causing thrillers? OK thx bye. #MSWL
