Please note: I only edit for adult readers. Please don't send me anything YA or Teen.

Also, unless you've pitched me in person, I only consider agented submissions.

However, Tor/Forge/Nightfire has an open submissions policy: us.macmillan.com/torforge/about…

And another #mswl in the thriller space: I am horribly obsessed with true crime about cults, and family secrets that lead to deadly outcomes, and wild stuff like this. In Adult, especially, and in YA!

Before I forget! I love historical romance, historical fantasies, alternate historical fantasies etc etc in YA and Adult. I’d LOVE an f/f in a period story! Like duchess debauchery or some shit. With WOC!!! Bc racism is a recent phenomenon. #mswl

It's #MSWL day, and I don't make the rules, so here I go.
(Adult Fiction)

Adult #Mystery, #Thriller, #Suspense-- I love my dark mysteries and thrillers along the lines of Tana French. I will never do a #MSWL without Tana French's name. Ever. I've read a ton of Ruth Ware this year, and loved it all.

send me a dark, twisty, literary thriller, YA or adult - a complicated narrator that i hate to love or love to hate. i'm a gigantic kate morton fan and would l-o-v-e that kind of dual timeline sweeping generational mystery. please. seriously. PLEASE. #MSWL

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD · Sep 24

I'd love to see supernatural & ghost stories, adult or YA. Bring on the eery, haunting, or Gothic. #MSWL

Hey, it's #mswl day! I'm a SFF editor with DAW Books looking to acquire submissions for the adult market.

Just a brief reminder that I can only consider agented submissions. That said, here are some things I'd love to see in my inbox!

In YA/Adult fantasy, idgaf about saving the world, but a MC using the backdrop of a good vs evil world conflict to get shit done in pursuit of selfish goals? YES #mswl

Ruoxi Chen @jruoxichen · Sep 24

#MSWL day: I'd love to see more F/F in my inbox. give me your adult WILDER GIRLS, your righthand women fiercely defending their gfs, the claustrophobic intimacy of friendship where you might just take a bite out of each other, your SF/F Elena Ferrante, your swordswomen in love.

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · Sep 24

Geeky YA or adult nonfiction pop culture. #MSWL I'm talking geeky like cosplay, Star Trek, a take on manga or anime (HUGE Sailor Moon fan over here) video/board games, etc.

Kristy Hunter @KristySHunter · Sep 24

In #Adult I’d love to see more women’s fiction from underrepresented voices, projects with hints of magic (think The Night Circus), romcoms, historical fiction, and books with strong hooks that would be the perfect read for your next book club #MSWL

#MSWL day!!! I use the tag all the time, and my website also has a pretty specific wish list, but here is another thread of what I have been craving RIGHT NOW. pic.twitter.com/66QRJBndba

ROMANCE! Specifically true enemies to lovers. Like literally want to kill each other before they have to work together for some reason and maybe kiss? But still, hate each other and now hate themselves for wanting to kiss more. So yeah, Jude and Cardan but adult. ;-) #mswl

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · Sep 24

I'm dying to find more accessible adult sci-fi and fantasy novels, along the lines of @ChuckWendig @pengshepherd @DelilahSDawson and @KatWithSword.

I've read everything they've written, and would love to find a SFF novel that makes me feel like The Book of M. #MSWL
