I’m only open to queries for a few more days (closing 8/15!). Here is what is at the top of my wishlist:
-High concept middle grade
-kidlit graphic novels
-Adult RomCom w a great hook
-Adult female driven suspense + thrillers
I'd love to see more upmarket/literary fantasy in my inbox, a la TEN THOUSAND DOORS, UPROOTED, A DARKER SHADE. I'm particularly drawn to books that play with fairytales and folklore, but I'm looking for anything that draws me in w/ great characters and excellent writing. #mswl
Patrice Caldwell @whimsicallyoursi love a great baking comparison when it comes to writing. so, of course i love @dongwon's most recent newsletter on "the beginning" of your novel. a must read!
I can't find a tweet for it, but I also really want more dark, twisted suspense/thrillers a la Gillian Flynn, Ruth Ware, Wendy Heard, and Lauren Beukes. If it crosses over into horror, that's great too! #QuarantineMSWL (7/?)
Rebecca Kuss @reebsthereader@laurenspieller YUP. i need midnight adventures in enchanted mansions that open up to alternate dimensions and flying ships captained by talking manticores and just something (anything) that does not involve the phrase "so what should we watch next?"
