I would like to see more psychological thrillers in YA #mswl

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · Sep 25

If you have a fantasy or a sci-fi or a thriller with horror elements, I really really really want to read it #mswl

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · Sep 18

Iā€™d love to see more domestic suspense and psychological thrillers in my inbox! #mswl

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · Sep 15

Iā€™m officially open to queries again! šŸŽ‰ 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! šŸ“š

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · Jul 24

I'm about to close to queries, but before I do, I'd really love to see some heartfelt MG in my inbox, along with twisty psychological thrillers & smart horror. #mswl

While I'm at it, it would ALSO be great to read a super smart, deviously plotted domestic suspense or psych thriller. #mswl

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · Apr 2

At the top of my April #mswl:

-middle grade with a crisp, authentic voice
-YA Contemporary with a big hook
-Adult suspense or psych thrillers

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · Mar 8

Iā€™d love to see more domestic suspense, psychological thrillers, and creepy thriller/horror in the vein of Lauren Beukes! #mswl

#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

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · 12 Sep 2018

A few uber specific #mswl requests:

-middle grade set in CA
-MG/YA featuring Jewish characters (whether they are religious is up to you)
-a book about NASA space camp
-characters with weird jobs or hobbies
-realistic, sex-positive YA
-international thriller with a female MC

Lauren [closed to queries in August] @laurenspieller

that might not seem like a ton, but when you consider how many genres I represent across multiple age categories, it is a LOT

When I open to queries again in September, I hope to continue receiving YA Fantasy (because I love it) but I also hope I see more

ā˜» Middle Grade Fantasy
ā˜» YA Contemporary
ā˜» Adult SFF
ā˜» Adult Psych Thrillers


Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · 30 Apr 2018

Please send me an adult psychological thriller set in space. #mswl

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · 29 Mar 2018

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller

Pick your poison (and then query me with it)ā€¦


-a compulsively readable story of a young woman's quest to overcome her religious upbringing

-an edge-of-your seat thriller about a daughter's quest to avenge her mother's death

- a heartrending (space) war epic about a doomed adventurer's desire to avoid his own birth

Lauren Spieller @laurenspieller · 14 Jan 2018

Writers, this is my forever #MSWL-- I'd like to read a mystery or a thriller set in a SFF world. I love genre-bending spec fic!
