BookEnds Literary Agency @bookendslit@wensday95 wants #Historicalfiction with a slight #speculative or #horror bent like Alma Katsu's THE HUNGER or Sarah Perry's THE ESSEX SERPENT
BONUS: she also wants contemp mystery/thriller where setting is integral like Jane Harper's books or Attica Locke's BLUEBIRD, BLUEBIRD.
I'll send out some more in-depth #mswl tweets next week, but in the meantime, two things I'd really love to see more of in my inbox are dual timeline narratives and crime / mystery novels, historical or contemporary. Send 'em!
Mystery: historical--again, especially diverse historical--cozies, and mysteries with so much atmosphere you can practically wring it out of the pages. If your setting is integral to your story, I want to see it! #mswl
It finally feels like Fall here, and it makes me want a story with a bite in the air. Give me wind and rain and secrets and mysteries, maybe a hulking castle or lonely croft on the moor. Something you can practically squeeze the atmosphere out of. #mswl

Saw this and immediately started thinking of a mystery / thriller / suspense set in 19th-century, blizzardy New York. #mswl
Time for some #mswl tweets! Here are just some of the things I'm looking for right now.
In general, I rep adult mystery, romance, women's fiction, some SF/F, and upmarket projects, and love to see historical fiction across all genres. I also rep narrative nonfiction.
Remember those shows PBS used to do like Frontier House and Regency House Party where modern peeps would "live" in the past? What about a book with that premise? Maybe a murder mystery. Maybe a rom com. I'm just spitballing, but I think I need this. #mswl
#amquerying writers, I only have 3 queries left! Send more! I'm currently looking for adult mystery, romance (esp historical & diverse historical), women's fiction, and upmarket projects, as well as nonfiction on the topics of food, material culture, & social history. #mswl
Amanda Jain @wensday95#MSWL call for diverse mysteries like Kellye Garrett's Detective by Day, Tina Kashian's Kebab Kitchen, and Vivien Chien's Noodle Shop Mystery series.
Still looking for these in my inbox. Send 'em along if you got 'em! #mswl
