I'd love to see some more mysteries, thrillers, and crime novels in my query box! I'm in a murdery mood, so whaddaya got for me? #mswl

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · Jan 15

I'd love to see some adult fiction set in the seedy, gritty underbelly of an 18th- or 19th-century city. A super immersive setting with magic? A mystery? Both?? Whaddaya got for me #amquerying writers? #mswl

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · Jan 2

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!

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 13 Nov 2018

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

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 12 Sep 2018

Lastly in mystery, I'd love to see some diverse cozies land in my inbox. There aren't nearly enough of them, please send more! #mswl

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 12 Sep 2018

In mystery, I'm a sucker for stories where the setting is inseparable from the plot / characters. What Attica Locke does in BLUEBIRD, BLUEBIRD and Jane Harper does in the Aaron Falk books, exceptional. #mswl

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 12 Sep 2018

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.

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 14 Aug 2018

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

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 25 Jul 2018

#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 · 4 Jun 2018

Bumping my #MSWL post from March since it still applies. I'm especially looking for historical romance, cozy and historical mysteries, and nonfiction. #amquerying and #amwriting authors, send me your lovelies!

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 24 Apr 2018

Can anyone recommend a good cozy mystery in the vein of The Great British Baking Show? I want all the feelings / aesthetics of that show in a cozy. If not, well, #mswl.

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 6 Apr 2018

Querying authors! I'm looking for more mystery and suspense in my query box. Cozies, historicals, domestic and psych suspense. Find me here to submit a query: QueryMe.Online/AmandaJain. #mswl

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 27 Mar 2018

#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.

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · 21 Mar 2018

#MSWL Madness continues over on the BookEnds blog, and my post is up today! Go take a peek to get an idea of what I'm currently looking for. #amwriting #amquerying

I'd also really love to find a contemporary mystery where the setting is an equally important component of the story. Think Jane Harper's THE DRY. #mswl #amwriting #amquerying
