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

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!
#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.
Abby Saul @BookySaulIt'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. twitter.com/BookySaul/stat…
#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!
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 psliterary.com/submissions/
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
