Amanda Rutter @ALRutterWhen I was younger, I read Freya North's Cat, which was about a journalist covering the Tour de France. And Jilly Cooper's Riders featured the Olympic show jumping. Fiona Walker's French Relations/Well Groomed shows Badminton Horse Trials.
Give me more recs like this!
Plus, if you can bear the thought of partnering with an agent who would have to start contacts from nothing, then #MSWL on sporting bonkbusters. Extra credit if they're a) an unusual sport and b) queer!
RN, I'm craving a YA/Adult romance with a male love interest who OOZES charm and charisma. Nothing else, just those vibes of being irresistible af and leaning into it. Please give me your Henry Montagues, Ian Flannerys, Jesper Faheys, and yes, even Jace Waylands. #MSWL
Finally, the thing I didn't know I wanted. I have found that several times in this past year and it has been absolute delight. My clients' creativity always outpaces my own imagination, and I love to be surprised by a book. If it's middle grade of YA, try me! #MSWL
Of course I rep a lot of amazing YA fantasy authors and always love YA fantasy, and am especially excited to find fantasy that totally upends my expectations, contemporary fantasy, and contained fantasy (a la a fantasy set on a cruise kind of thing). #MSWL
Peter Knapp @petejknappI'm eager for fun middle grade series, humorous or not -- but definitely heartfelt. Sweeping worlds, sweeping adventures, kids wrapped up with gods and monsters and magic. Bonus points for fun animal (or magical-creature) sidekick characters! #MSWL
Related to last post: books like AMARI AND THE NIGHT BROTHERS, NEVERMOOR, SCHOOL FOR GOOD AND EVIL, ARU SHAH. #MSWL

Related to both of the previous: character-driven, slow burn horror. Less slasher and more the kind where it feels like we're slowly digging beneath the surface of a seemingly normal town or place and finding the sinister monstrosity beneath. #MSWL
I'm eager to find some thrillers a la ACE OF SPADES, ONE OF US IS LYING, GOOD GIRLS GUIDE TO MURDER, etc. I have clients working on amazing supernatural/fantastical thrillers, too, like @katepearsall and @stageandpage but welcome more. I love a witchy murder mystery! #MSWL
Peter Knapp @petejknappHard to understand how it'll be August on the other side of the weekend, but nonetheless! I am excited to catch up on all the reading in August and am on the hunt for some exciting projects to sell this fall. A #MSWL thread...
