Of course, one of our favorite things it to be surprised. So if you've written a middle grade or young adult novel you're excited about, or an adult fantasy or horror, we'd love to hear from you! #MSWL
We're also looking to grow our commercial adult fantasy list in stories with a genre hook, especially expansive fantasy and psychological horror. Thing JADE CITY, CITY OF BRASS, THE ATLAS SIX, MEXICAN GOTHIC, THE ONLY GOOD INDIANS. #MSWL
Related to both of the previous: character-driven, slow burn horror. Less slasher and more the kind where it feels like we're slowly digging beneath the surface of a seemingly normal town or place and finding the sinister monstrosity beneath. #MSWL
I’m eager to find YA thrillers, mysteries, psychological suspense that are brilliantly plotted. Think the work of Tiffany D. Jackson, Lamar Giles, E. Lockhart’s WE WERE LIARS, Karen McManus, etc. All would love to find original horror like WILDER GIRLS. #mswl
#MSWL - Smart, commercial YA thrillers & mysteries! Think Tiffany Jackson, Karen McManus, E. Lockhart. Also, YA horror! I’d love something like MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN, with a good speculative twist.
Peter Knapp @petejknappHello! I'm looking to find some great projects while I'm home with lots (and lots) of reading time. Here's a quick #MSWL rundown: a thread.
#MSWL - MIDDLE GRADE. Any and all middle grade! I am hungry for it: standalone contemporary, sweeping fantasy series, sci-fi, horror, you name it. I’d love something high concept, like CITY OF EMBER, NEVERMOOR, ARU SHAH & THE END OF TIME, etc.
