My main goal this year is to build out my adult list, so I'm eagerly looking for more #mystery #suspense #thriller, book club and upmarket fiction! #MSWL

"In adult fiction, I love interesting voices/POVs, dual timelines with a historical feel, rhythmic language, and anything that is both an engaging and accessible read, while being thought-provoking and layered at the same time."
"Seeking generational stories of parenthood and family with non-binary and/or trans characters in the commercial or historical adult fiction genre (ie. heavy with plot!)"
It's #MSWL day! I acquire romance, book club fiction, suspense/thriller, and mystery in the adult space. More details here:
Happy #mswl day! Always looking for adult suspense, obsession, mystery, thriller, and book club. 📚manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/lori…
⤵️ A few Adult tones to consider
It's #MSWL Day... 📜
In Adult I'm now open to SFF, so I'd love to see lush world building, morally grey MC's & lovable villains 🖤
Time Travel where it compliments a much bigger plot 🪐
I'm still on the look out for a psychological thriller with an unreliable narrator 🎭
It's #MSWL Day, & what I'm most excited about right now is LOVE stories! Please, please gimme 'em! Also, I'd love to see thrillers in the adult & YA space. There's more–because I'm greedy like that–so check out the new manuscript wishlist page. Thanks! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/Jemi…
Several of my YA romance writers are pivoting to adult and I am having a great time with it, so I'm opening to adult rom-coms for the first time! Still not the best fit for genre romance, but send me your funny, layered, high-concept mainstream rom-coms.
Happy #MSWL day! Here is the link to my updated @ManuscriptWList page:
Happy #MSWL day! You can see my wishlist here: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/sara… I'm looking for all MG and YA fiction (except graphic novels), adult romance, and adult anything-under-speculative-umbrella except hardcore horror #mg #ya #sff
I want to see fun and sweet contemporary romances with high concept hooks in the adult space as well. Think Lily Chu’s The Stand In or Emily Henry’s Book Lovers. I’m probably not the right agent for more serious romance stories. #MSWL
I’d love to see more horror in my inbox. It can be adult (or YA). Not slash and hack bloody horror, but the kind that builds psychological tension in a smart and surprising way. #MSWL
I’m expanding into repping more adult projects in genre fiction. I want to see more cozy fantasy, romantic or not, with low stakes, warmth, humor and whimsy. Basically a hug in book form. #MSWL
My full #mswl can be found on the agency website but here’s what I’m especially looking for in 2023:
—Adult + YA RomCom that are FUNNY AF *or/and* Adult Romance w a magic/spec twist
—Suspense/Thrillers (we need more queer and POC rep in this category!)
—MG Fantasy! All kinds!
Happy #MSWL day! I represent authors in the Adult, YA, and crossover SFF space. I am always looking for sharp writing, punchy characters, and big emotions. ☺️ Query me!
You can read my full wishlist here:
For #MSWL Day, here are some of the things I'd most love to see in my Query Manager:
Would love to find Extraordinary Attorney Woo in book form, adult or YA.
It's #MSWL day so I'm sharing all the things I want to see in my inbox! Since there's a character limit, I'll just link to my MSWL page. I'm looking for a broad range of material in the adult, MG, & YA spaces:
#amwriting #amquerying #WritingCommunity
Oh hey it's #MSWL day! Here's a link to my new shiny page. TLDR: I want adult fiction that stretches my imagination, and connects me back to big chewy ideas in the real world. Fresh speculative fiction, philosophical SFFH, ambitious satires.
I’m technically on vacation but saw it was #MSWL day and wanted to pop in and say that all my recent MSWL posts are still valid.
Also, I would really love more adult projects and GN projects in my inbox. 👀
