Lauren Is Open To Queries!
I’m officially open to queries again! 🎉 I am especially eager to find MG, Adult thrillers, + upmarket Adult SFF. However, you can find my full wishlist (and submission guidelines) on the Triada website, MSWL website, or #mswl hashtag. I look forward to hearing from you! 📚
Kate Prosswimmer @kap212Last weekend's Saturday plans gave me a new #mswl request - a YA thriller set on Governors Island (or someplace similar) after dark!
A contained situation where safety is visible but out of reach 👍🏻
A ton of similar-looking buildings (disorienting but many places to hide!) 👍🏻
oh my gosh who is going to write this for meeee (and Kate) #mswl
Lindsay Landgraf Hess @LindsayLHess@laurenspieller What are you hoping to see in your slush inbox in the coming months, anything in particular?
My #mswl is pretty extensive, but I really want more MG, adult thrillers, and crossover/adult SFF
Alexandra Sehulster @ASehulsterI want a book that truly messes with your perception of reality. Not just a psychological thriller, but a truly, mind-bending, House of Leaves-type book that blasts away all previous notions of what a book can be #MSWL
Oooo ditto #mswl
#mswl for spring 2019! 🌸
*Contemp Fantasy in MG, YA, Adult
*Character driven SF in MG & Adult
*Female MC thrillers & suspense
*Jewish and LatinX folklore
*YA Contemp with a BIG hook
#MSWL Lightning Round:
--MG with a unique hook and a focus on friendship
--f/f YA that explores the lines between friendship and romance
--Adult psychological thriller that *isn't* about a woman who might be crazy/imagining the whole thing
--Adult SFF that makes me cry
Eliza Swift @elizaswiftOur whole office has been talking about the Fyre festivals docs and I have a new #mswl: a YA horror/thriller set at a musical festival gone wrong. Give me this book!!!
