Adult

#MSWL But I would love adult contemporary romance that challenges the reader to consider race, culture,& religion as characters navigate the relationship. If you think your book will challenge me to look critically at myself and my privileged white perspective, I want to read it.

#MSWL Looking for adult contemp romance: primarily queer or neurodiverse. I really want to focus on queer and/or autistic relationships and show the broad range of experiences that heterocis/neurotypical creators/characters have tons of page space to show already.

#MSWL Some of my favorite adult fantasy and sci fi titles:
THE TETHERED MAGE by Melissa Caruso, PLANETFALL by Emma Newman, PRIEST OF BONES by Peter McLean, THE POPPY WAR by R.F. Kuang, and STORY OF YOUR LIFE/ARRIVAL by Ted Chiang.

I've been seeing a lot of queries with sophisticated tinges of horror (both YA and adult) and I am Loving it right now! Especially the Gothic horror. Perfect fall reading... #MSWL

I’m dying to add some adult romance to my list! I’m open to pretty much anything in this vein, but I’m not a big fan of historicals. #mswl

I am always, actively seeking MG and YA of all genres, Adult SFF, and Romance. That said, right now I am especially hungry for more adult clients to add to my list. If you've got a great adult SFF or romance, please, hit me up! #mswl

Guess I should tag this thread w/ #MSWL & #PNR & #F & #Vampires #Adult #A (no YA or MG, not my rep'ing jam. Props to my fellow agents who rep those age ranges, but not my expertise.) Also if you sub me w/a project like this feel free to reply to this thread to give me a heads-up.

I'm reading emails, queries, and tweets in the midst of a Saturday spent judging varsity debate rounds. Oh, would I love a debate novel (#MSWL), YA or adult either. The varsity resolution debates the degree to which standardized tests ought to be used during college admissions.

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!

Adding to the #mswl because I think I botched a previous ask in this thread! I LOVE small town stories, (ESPECIALLY Adult romance!!) I just want them diverse and from a different voice! I also think of suburbs and small towns as completely different settings, sorry for confusion!

Replying to @SoCalledYALife

I think a book that also talks about tough subjects would be cool. Like racial issues, a death manual (as in like how to talk about it, etc), financial planning. And why it is important TO talk about these things. There is so much that isn't talk about until BOOM! adult. #MSWL

For #MSWL day, here's my current list: I am always looking for high-concept commercial fiction for MG, YA, adult. Favorite genres are horror, mystery, suspense, thriller, and contemporary.

Melanie Castillo @wellmelsbells · Sep 24

Just putting this out there: Beautifully-written, well-researched, and expansive adult fiction that straddles the line between commercial and literary. A recent example is Madeline Miller’s CIRCE, but Barbara Kingsolver’s THE POISONWOOD BIBLE is a tried-and-true favorite. #MSWL

#MSWL I'm looking for strong YA/adult crossover titles with voice, sense of place, and a unique POV. Keep momentum going. Also, please something with a unique format or story structure that will be appeal to reluctant readers.

#MSWL Feminist historical fiction in adult, YA, MG and PB.

Bridget Smith @bredalot · Sep 24

In adult, I am particularly looking for SFF! I'm currently excited about fun voicey space books, epic fantasy set in original and well-defined worlds, and fantasy that turns a familiar trope on its head. #mswl

I know summer is over (sob!) but I'm still looking for that summer vacation love story. It could take place at the beach or lake or in an exotic city, but I want something where there are real stakes involved with what happens when summer ends. (YA/Adult)

I'd also love to see some #Caribbean/#Latinx post-Hurricane Irma/Maria stories, stories that tackle the issues head-on but in a hopeful way, with a romance or personal growth for the main characters. Also YA or Adult.
