Eric Smith @ericsmithrocksThis book is very good, I should know. ❤️🎶✨🏳️🌈 twitter.com/jules_chronicl…
Also please, and I cannot stress this enough, send me your inclusive and diverse fantasy novels. Adult and YA!
I need more in my life. #mswl
2020 has been such a whirlwind, I forgot to draft a new #MSWL since joining @CamCatBooks! We just celebrated our one-year anniversary last week, so it's a great time to put out a call for subs (both agented and unagented) of all types of genre fiction, adult and YA. Thread:
Katherine Locke @BibliogatoThere are so many good non-Holocaust Jewish pitches!!!
AGENTS. EDITORS. Please please try acquiring and promoting books that aren't just about mass Jewish death. Jewish kids AND non-Jewish kids deserve to see Jewish people as heroes of their own story, not just against Nazis.
If I missed your #DVpit pitch, paste query & 1st 5 pages in email. #A: horror, thriller, cont. romance, rom-com & mystery. #YA: thriller, SFF, horror, cont. & mystery. #MG: SFF, mystery, cont., & horror. #diversity #MSWL #ownvoices querylynnette (@) theseymouragency (.) com
#MSWL In adult fiction I'm looking for:
-LIFE IN PIECES in book form (& ensemble casts)
-something commercial with delicious vacation drama
-characters with an entrepreneurial spirit (again and always)
-clever arc structures and use of form
Rachel Diebel 🌻 @diebelraI ‘ M S O R R Y I just learned that Amelia Earhart and Eleanore Roosevelt were probably gay for each other and idk how someone can shoehorn this into a commercial YA novel but #MSWL please someone try
Yes! #mswl for YA or Adult for me!
Ashley Herring Blake @ashleyhblakeHere’s a #MSWL for you: A YA or ADULT fantasy set in Paris or Prague or Budapest or something uniquely akin, with an MC who most definitely knows she’s badass & powerful & won’t hesitate to tell you exactly where you can stick your hero-complex. In my dreams, she’s ragingly pan.
A contemporary YA/Adult fantasy with your fave anti-hero. #MSWL

Would love an adult sci-fi, or spec-fi with strong world-building centered on a Latinx culture, but also want it to have a very strong science fiction plot line. Would love Dune vibes. #MSWL
Updated my agenting wishlist. Two specific highlights:
* Novels (includes kid-lit!) and memoirs about the adoptee experience, by adoptees.
* Adult and kid-lit books that celebrate neurodiversity, from authors who are neurodivergent.

I just finished Rick Riordan's recent Apollo book, and I would love an upper MG or YA or Adult book about Artemis/Diana. If YA or A, I would love this in the vein of Madeline Miller's Circe. MG would be in the vein of a RR Presents novel! #mswl
i have SO many incredible queries in my inbox and i'm reading from my couch so keep 'em coming! some of my #MSWL : heartwarming YA w/ mixed-race families, gorgeous essay collections on queerness/sex/sexuality, and adult fic w/ a protagonist of color figuring out their early 20s
I really want an adult book like Killing Eve. I don't normally rep suspense or thrillers, but I'd love something in speculative fiction the incorporates similar themes. I love how smart it is and how dark Villanelle is. Please give me more Villanelle characters. #MSWL
