Adult

In adult SFF, I am dying for a good fantasy with a richly developed world and strong characters. Bonus points if it’s a culture we haven’t seen as much of! #MSWL

So it’s been a while since I did a #MSWL thread, and I’m stuck in the car, so now seems as good a time as any! pic.twitter.com/xf6B32GAhT

Just as a reminder, I am open to MG and YA of all categories, Adult SFF, Adult Romance, and select nonfiction. For my static #MSWL and sub guidelines, please check out my website. Link in bio!

4/4 #MSWL Young adult: contemporary romance & dating; LGBTQ+; diverse families and ownvoices; captivating voice in narrative; well-structured mystery; survival; suspense; self-esteem; mental health; body positivity; well-rounded supporting cast; subversive outcast; happy endings.

Magical realism is something I love overall and would like to see more of, both in YA and adult. Would love to have some Latinx voices in for this one! #MSWL

I’m also looking for romcoms in both, YA and adult! I like them to have an interesting angle, not just stay in the corporate world, or high school (drama club, sports team, etc)! #MSWL

Thriller writers: I'd love to see a big pharma version of "The Big Short." (adult or even YA, with a teen protagonist affected by the opiate crisis). Please send my way. #MSWL nyti.ms/2HniDgu

Also, I would love to work with more graphic novels this year, so #graphicnovel authors and artists, hmu with your MG, YA, and even adult ideas. #MSWL

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

Patricia Nelson @patricianels · Jan 15

It's January 15 & that means I'm now open to queries again -- and hungry to find some new talent for the new year! Send me your lyrical MG fantasy, your heartfelt MG contemp, your weird and/or witchy YA, your adult or YA romcoms, and anything else amazing. #mswl

Where’s all the adult speculative fiction and romance?! #mswl

ZR/Zabé Ellor @ZREllor · Jan 10

#MSWL Diverse adult SFF. Unique worldbuilding and complex characters.

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · Jan 9

For those #amquerying I remain open to queries. Genres high on my #mswl for 2019 in adult and YA include horror, historical fantasy, chilling mysteries, and tense stories about survival. In nonfiction would love some weird or fun history.

I am not an agent or an editor, so I'm just throwing it out there for writers who do humor better than me:

I would kill for a YA book that captured the tone and feeling of the late great tv show Dead Like me.

selfishly expanding this into a #mswl for adult SFF that hits that Dead Like Me sweet spot of charming sardonic & reserved w/a deep undercurrent of heartbreak & stunning empathy that will break into the main storyline without warning. high concept but make it lump in your throat

A couple corrections to my previous thread. For Adult fiction: I do very little adult fiction, but I do love reading it. Offbeat/literary but not experimental, commercial and book club, adventure/mystery. No fantasy, sci-fi, category romance. #MSWL

Do I need to remind everyone that I have HUGE #MSWL for MG, YA, and adult fiction and nonfiction by Islander authors?! Whatever island, fam. Just send it.

Adult fiction: I do very little adult NF, but I do love reading it. Offbeat/literary but not experimental, commercial and book club, adventure/mystery. No fantasy, sci-fi, category romance. #MSWL
