One of the things I'm interested in doing A LOT MORE OF when I reopen to queries on 9/1/21 is ADULT fiction, specifically:

Adult Suspense
Adult RomCom
Adult SFF/H.

So if you're writing any of these, *please* query! #mswl

I adore Adult Fantasy like THE ROOK and HENCH. Funny, trope twisting, smart, and that shows the mundane side of something fantastic and the fantastic side of something mundane. I’d love to see more of it in my inbox. #mswl

Okay I am totally stealing this from @SarahGrill1, but anything that feels like CLUE, THE WESTING GAME, or KNIVES OUT from a diverse POV, send it my way. Adult or YA. #mswl

Writers! I am craving adult books. Send me your contemporary romance + romcoms, your suspense and thrillers, your horror + SFF, and your non-fic as long as it has a platform! I’m also very interested in reading genre bending books, so send those too! #mswl

3. RomCom - Adult or YA. I want laugh out loud, swoony, sexy, joyful reads. I loved RWRB and The Hating Game on the Adult side, To All the Boys and Gentleman's Guide on the YA side. But really, I'm happy to read anything that's truly Rom AND Com. #mswl

2. Adult thrillers/suspense: I like stories w/ top notch characterization + a slow burn, and also stories that are gripping page turners that I finish in one sitting. A few favorites: Ruth Ware, Rhiannon Navin, Wendy Heard, Gillian Flynn, Danya Kukafka, Oyinkan Braithwaite #mswl

1. Adult Horror: I want books that have something to SAY--about our present, our past, our future. Feminist/anti-colonialist stories are close to my heart, but I'm open to anything that can be described as "smart + terrifying." I'm also open to grounded fantasy w/ horror elements

Current #MSWL wishlist:

❤️ YA/Adult Rom Com— high concept and swoony

✨ Magical stories with fun, pacey plots - MG/YA/Adult

If your project doesn’t fall under these two categories but it is still uplifting and joyful, I’d love to see it!

I'd love to find a dark fairy tale retelling in the vein of UPROOTED that plays with form/timeline/expectations. Looking for MG/YA/Adult! #mswl
