I will happily keep reading and requesting #fantasy novels, but the odds are really slim that I'll offer representation. It has to really impress me. #MSWL #Submissions 3/3
Andrew Zack/TZC @thezackcompanyI've been reading and rejecting submissions the last couple of days. Full MS and synopsis, though I haven't read the whole of one yet. #fantasy is taking a beating. #MSWL #Submissions 1/3
For me, #fantasy has to have an utterly original plot. It cannot in any way feel familiar. And the writing has to be incredible. There are so few markets left for a fantasy novel. It has to grab the reader from page one. #MSWL #Submissions 2/3
That said, I am always looking for good page-turning thrillers, mysteries, crime novels, science fiction, fantasy, and even women's fiction. For a complete list, see the "what we want" page on our website. #mswl
