On the look out for adult fiction with a wonderful revenge story and a romance subplot! Bonus points if it has time travel. If you haven’t see the korean dramas, Marry My Husband or Perfect Marriage Revenge, on Prime. You should. I need that. 😍 #mswl

I’m going to really dive back into my queries soon & would love to see more big epic fantasy, adult or YA. I’m talking complex, court intrigue, not romance-forwardβ€”I am watching House of the Dragon and reading James Islington, and craving something that scratches that itch #mswl

-More illustrators or author/illustrators, especially marginalized
-Poetic, lyrical PBs (but not rhyme) with lots of layers and heart
-Creepy, spooky ghost stories (Adult/New Adult)
-Gorgeous prose but highly commercial concepts across the board

WRITERS: I will be closing to queries on June 8th-so that I can catch up on submissions and focus on client manuscripts. As a reminder, I'm looking for YA/MG/PB and Adult and Kids NF. Polish and send those queries by 6/8 or hang on to them until later in the summer. Thanks!

I am going to open again to queries next Monday. I would really like to see a romance (either YA or mainstream adult) that will sweep me away, a character I will fall in love with in chapter 1, and to add more diversity to my list overall. #mswl QueryManager.com/1621

I am open to queries! I need to prioritize current authors, so right now there are very specific types of books that I will be paying closer attention to.

Submission instructions are at dunhamlit.com, and this graphic will hopefully also help you plan when to query me.

#MSWL I’d love to see some YA, NA, or Adult projects set on the set of a non-U.S. TV show/movie!

Probably not reality show based (unless the show has a an all BIPOC cast) so more that the set is just the setting w/the heart of the story elsewhere.

WRITERS! New #MSWL w/ a few changes. Still looking for Adult NF (lifestyle, parenting, sports, current events, etc) and YA/MG/PB, but expanding YA/MG to fantasy and still including dystopian/sci-fi/horror/contemporary. Make me laugh, make me sob! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/shari-maurer/
