My #MSWL part 2: I NEED adult horror--dark & creepy. If you have violence/gore, there needs to be a reason for it, not just "to entertain." You don't need either to make it a killer story. Premise must be UNIQUE. Scare me with your words. I dare ya! #WritingCommunity #amquerying

My #MSWL part 1: I'm looking for adult thrillers--all kinds, but the premise has to be UNIQUE. It can be a serial killer, but what's different? Political, medical, any kind of thriller or psychological suspense, but show me how your story stands out. #amquerying #WritingCommunity

I always want: Adult: thrillers, horror, fantasy, sci-fi, contemporary romance, rom-com, & mysteries. YA: thrillers, horror, sci-fi, fantasy, mysteries, & contemporary. MG: Horror, sci-fi, fantasy, contemporary, mysteries, & humor. #diversity #MSWL #writingcommunity #amquerying

Please send me your contemporary YA; I'd love some Mean Girls or Veronica Mars-style mss.

I'm also open to adult romance! Please send me your ridiculously cute and quirky characters!


Tia Rose Mele @TiatheTiger · 14 Nov 2019

I keep saying I want adult romances in general (I DO!!) but here’s something specific: I’d love a romance ft. An EMT*! #mswl

*I am not the person for doctor(or emt)/patient romances though.

Rachel Ekstrom Courage (on a hiatus) @EkstromRachel · 11 Nov 2019

GOOD MORNING #writingcommunity! Who is writing the holiday rom-com of my dreams (adult or YA)? I very much enjoy Christmas but would LOVE to see a variety of holiday traditions represented. #MSWL #NaNoWriMo #NaNoWriMo2019

Happy to see recs of published books as well!

Beth Marshea- CLOSED TO QUERIES @busybethm · 10 Nov 2019

I'm still looking for a good adult, futuristic, positive tech sci-fi revolving around cultures we don't see enough of in spec fic. I'm open, but maybe Mexico or India or Lebanon... #mswl

"Novels about adoptees, written by adoptees. Adult or YA, I want those stories." @ericsmithrocks #MSWL

Sharlene Martin @MartinLitMgmt · 6 Nov 2019

#MSWL Looking for adult NONFICTION that has high adaptability for scripted or unscripted tv/film. Pop culture, true crime, celebrity, whistleblower, well written proposals. You only have one time to make a great first impression.

Vicki Lame @thedaysbetween · 6 Nov 2019

#MSWL YA and adult rom coms or rom sads that are funny and emotionally complicated (I'll know which kind of rom when I read it! 🙂 )

Kiki Nguyen @kianangu · 1 Nov 2019

I would cry if I got a YA or Adult romance f/f that felt like @claudmp3’s music. Writers, please help me out and send me this book! #mswl

It's the final countdown, #WritingCommunity! I'll be closed to queries starting next week, so get them in now! Otherwise I'll look forward to reading in 2020.…

#MSWL is always adult fiction (particularly women's, mysteries, thrillers, historical, and select literary) that is doing something new. Underexplored settings, unusual characters, turning tropes on their head - gimme!

Kristin Temple 🎈 @_kristintemple · 31 Oct 2019

In celebration of Halloween, I’m gonna be posting another #MSWL thread, since I’m dying for more spooky things in my inbox!

General info: I’m not currently accepting unagented submissions. My priority is adult horror for @TorNightfire, but I love YA horror too 👻

“High stakes heists, with interesting complicated criminals and the heat of the chase – thrill me! Something like the adult version of DEATH PREFERS BLONDES.” @maureen_moretti #MSWL

Weronika Janczuk @WeronikaJanczuk · 26 Oct 2019

Sometimes, I want to email my favorite authors + say, "Can I steal you for my agenting self, I love you so much?" I think I may start, at some point, out of desperation. Please send me your goodies when I re-open. Thirsty for the best YA and adult fiction. Hoping for 11/15. #MSWL

Nora Long @NoraLong10 · 25 Oct 2019

Hey, exciting news! My #mswl page is officially up and running (and perhaps unnecessarily detailed), so hit me with your best shot, query people :)…
