Also, authors, I’ve updated my #MSWL in advance of opening back up to queries in October. I have expanded my genres to include adult SFF and updated my submission guidelines. I’m including the link to make your research life easier. 😊

QUERY UPDATE: You guys, I'm down to 0 unread queries! If you sent a query before June 1st & haven't heard from me, something got lost somewhere. I plan to re-open to unsolicited queries on October 1st. My #MSWL has been updated & new instructions will be posted so pay attention!

My #MSWL tweets were unthreaded because they were scheduled, so I've collected them here in this handy #moment.

Those are my top 5 #MSWL wants, but the list isn't exhaustive.

You can also check out my #MSWL page:

Also don't forget to follow submission guidelines, they are listed on my #MSWL page and the agency website.

5. It's April and it's still freezing in Upstate NY, so I want to see your #SummerLoving romances in both #YA and #Adult. Set at the beach, at the lake, in an exotic city, I want to see those stories that find two people struggling against what happens when summer ends. #MSWL

Eva Scalzo @evascalzo · May 1

4. A #YA #contemporary that is atmospheric a la RIVERDALE and blends mystery and romance in just the right way. I want to get the #creeps as well as #allthefeels. #MSWL

Eva Scalzo @evascalzo · May 1

3. I really want to see more #romanticsuspense. Heart-pounding thrillers with high stakes. I want to see strong women partnering up with strong men to save the day together. No damsels in distress. #MSWL

2. In #YA #SFF I'd like to see ensemble pieces with diverse representation. #LGBTQ & #POC in particular. Want to see comps like FOUR DEAD QUEENS/EMBER IN THE ASHES/RED QUEEN /Lunar Chronicles #MSWL

1. As a #Latinx literary agent, I want to represent more #Latinx voices—especially Puerto Rican, Cuban and Dominican voices. I represent most subgenres of #romance and #YA and want to see stories with these voices publish and thrive. #MSWL

QUERY BOX Update: I will remain open for the month of May, but will close to queries for the summer beginning Saturday, June 1st.

I will follow up this tweet with my top 5 #MSWL hopes and dreams, if they match your manuscripts please send them my way.

@StoneEmay @evascalzo She linked to her MSWL, that will give you lots of info!

Replying to @devinlikescake

I did! I mainly represent romance and YA, but my #MSWL will give you the particularsI can’t convey in 280 characters.

Eva Scalzo @evascalzo · Jan 29

You guys, I'm all caught up on #queries!

If you emailed me BEFORE December 1st and haven't heard back then somehow it got lost in transit. I will REOPEN to unsolicited #queries on FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1ST, no earlier.

My #MSWL is up-to-date.

Eva Scalzo @evascalzo · 8 Oct 2018

I’ve reopened to queries today. Before you hit send check out my #MSWL here: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/eva-… also pay close attention the submission guidelines detailed on the page.

Eva Scalzo @evascalzo · 1 Oct 2018

I'm re-opening to queries in ONE WEEK. I decided to update my #MSWL in advance so that anyone waiting to submit would have a good sense of what I'm looking for. It's not comprehensive but hopefully serves as guidance. manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/eva-…

R.A. Rios @s700com

@evascalzo Good Morning Eva, I came across old link , I just wanted to ask if you are still looking for subcategory romance submissions if so where can I send a query? thx
Robert, rariospromotions@gmail.com

Replying to @s700com

Hi Robert, my #MSWL hasn’t changed, I’m still looking at all romance except inspirational and YA except historical. Queries should be sent to speilburgliterary@gmail.com with my name in the subject line and first 3 chapters pasted in email.

Eva Scalzo @evascalzo · 7 Dec 2017

Look, I've got a wishlist of sorts...mainly I want to see more romance ❤️❤️❤️manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/eva-… @ManuscriptWList #MSWL
