Upmarket speculative fiction. Grounded fantasy, magical realism, retellings of fairy/folk tales, horror. The majority of my favourite books of all time live in this genre. #MSWL
The query inbox at @PSLiterary opens on Monday, and I’m so excited to add new clients to my list in 2020.
Representation info and my updated #mswl is at the link below. Let me know if you have any questions.
Still looking for a bunch of YA things: a story about female best friends; a macabre fairy tale retelling; a great mystery; a cute gay or lesbian love story. #MSWL
Angela Kunkel 📚 @rahrahreadWhat's at the top of your #MSWL right now? #askPSLA
Maria, Maria 🎶 @msmariavicenteI want to read YA with authentic voice, unique characters, and page-turning plot. #MSWL
A very dark fairy tale retelling for YA. Think "The Bloody Chamber" by Angela Carter in novel-form for a slightly younger audience. #MSWL
Maria, Maria 🎶 @msmariavicenteContemporary YA from the POV of the bad boy. Ex: Sebastian (Glee) or maybe even Chuck Bass (GG) without the problematic rape subplot. #MSWL
Dark, feminist fairy tale retelling. The Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter for YA (novel though, not stories). #MSWL
Maria, Maria 🎶 @msmariavicenteFor me, MG & YA submissions truly need to be based on a concept I've never heard before & I'm not a fan of stereotypical characters. #MSWL
I'd love to find a super CREEPY fairytale retelling for Young Adult or Middle Grade. #MSWL
