Literary Agent @TriadaUS | Author of Books for Young Adults | Check my website for book info & query status. I love dogs like it's my job. She/Her
Beautifully written or Upmarket Adult fantasy/SF/horror that would appeal to a book club audience. Think MEXICAN GOTHIC, STATION ELEVEN, or THE STARLESS SEA. #mswl
Lauren Spieller is open to queries! @laurenspiellerOkay YA Twitter, where is my spooky YA fantasy? Where’s my ghost story? My haunted house? My deadly secrets? My poison book? I want vibes, people! VIBES!
But also a plot that works and strong character development and a magic system that functions.
And VIBES! pic.twitter.com/NXnijrJ8gu
Sorry this is #mswl!
My full #mswl can be found on the agency website but here’s what I’m especially looking for in 2023:
—Adult + YA RomCom that are FUNNY AF *or/and* Adult Romance w a magic/spec twist
—Suspense/Thrillers (we need more queer and POC rep in this category!)
—MG Fantasy! All kinds!
𝐛𝐚𝐝 𝐛𝐢𝐭𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐬 𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐝 ᥫ᭡ @bookbaddiebrino more “not like other girls” in fantasy books and more insanely girly, hair done, nails done but can-still-beat-a-bitch-ass in fantasy books. please!!
I have been saying I want Elle Woods in a fantasy, and this is what I mean!!! #mswl
Can't do #pitdark today but I *WANT* you to query me with:
--dark academia in YA/Adult
--grounded, scary YA Fantasy
--thrillers/suspense in YA/Adult
I am especially keen to find these written by BIPOC! We need more of those voices on shelves! #mswl
I open to queries on Friday 4/1! I have a full manuscript wishlist you can see on the #MSWL website, but here are the items I'm looking for in particular:
--Adult suspense & RomCom
--YA contemp w/ a BIG commercial hook
I look forward to hearing from you!
I am still waiting on a poison fantasy, FYI. #mswl
Jordan Ifueko says REDEMPTOR available NOW @jifuekoFor all the progress we've made in YA fantasy female representation, we can't seem to get over the misogynistic trend of protagonists having to disdain stereotypically feminine things in order to be "Protagonist Material."
Give me high fantasy Elle Woods, please.
GIVE ME HIGH FANTASY ELLE WOODS PLEASE #mswl
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:
So if you're writing any of these, *please* query! #mswl
Nidhi Pugalia @makep1enotw4rMy #A #MSWL page is live! Agents, send me your BIPOC myth-retellings--your dark, lyrical novels that dip into fantasy--your REBECCA-esque gothic fiction--your quirky, voicey nonfic. Make me hungry, teach me something, whisk me away: bit.ly/2Udh4Is📚 pic.twitter.com/g67GgPz5g2
Ummm ditto. I want these things. #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
If you have written a swashbuckling, rip roaring, madcap romp of a MG Fantasy, I want to read it. #mswl
I'm not able to participate in #PitDark but if you're querying:
YA or Adult dark fantasy
YA or Adult suspense/thriller
YA or Adult horror
Consider this a request! #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
4. LatinX representation in kidlit- all ages, all genres, though I am particularly interested in finding a YA contemp & a MG fantasy! A few favorites: @LauraTNamey, @Nina_Writes, @acevedowrites, @djolder, and @CeliaCPerez. (You should be reading *all* of them!)
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
Mara Delgado-Sanchez is reading subs 🇵🇷 @little_mswriterMy kingdom for a Latinx fantasy (I mean, my kingdom for all of them, but I was taught to start with measured steps, so let’s start there) #MSWL twitter.com/little_mswrite… pic.twitter.com/YWCqzp1v5T
Angeline Rodriguez @gelrdrgzhello this is your periodic reminder that I was put on this earth to publish latinx sff, for the love of god send me your latinx sff. I want Chicanx cyberpunk, Dominican fantasy, Chilean space opera, magical realism mestizaje, 🇬🇹 all 🇻🇪 of 🇧🇷 it 🇨🇺, me entiendes?
Send it to me first!!! #mswl
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
Rounding up a few #mswl tweets that I will now think of as my official #QuarantineMSWL (1/?)
