Have I mentioned my obsession with secret societies? Like, I super love weird secret society stories and occult groups. Think NINTH HOUSE or THE SECRET HISTORY, but I'd also love to see stories outside of a university setting. #MSWL

I would LOVE a middle grade non-fiction book that explores the idea of patient zero and looks at different endemics and how medical researchers traced them back to that particular disease's patient zero.

Send this proposal to me!! #mswl

#BellLetsTalk is a great way to generate awareness. My #MSWL includes diverse representation of mental health issues both in fiction and non-fiction. Send me those queries. Let's end the stigma in as many ways as possible! 🙂

I'm redoing my #MSWL so I'll have a more in-depth list soon, but what I really want right now is small town romance. (Remember Finn on Grey's Anatomy, how he took Meredith on a date to birth a horse? Yeah, like that, but in a small town.) I just need some HEA and adorable towns

I'm craving things in my submissions that are joyful. Hard is everywhere. I want some light. #MSWL

I updated my visual #MSWL Pinterest board to give a sense for the types of books I love and want to work on. Peruse it here if you'd like! ✨

I kind of love the Dracula on Netflix. He's the kind of evil I'm looking for when asking for vampire stories. He's kind of funny too. Also, love sister Agatha. 😂 #MSWL

#MSWL: I’m usually not open to picture books I don’t solicit, but I’d love to see something celebrating holidays we don’t have many picture books about. Ones that aren’t currently served in publishing written by #own authors. So if you’ve got it, send it my way.

John Cusick @johnmcusick · Jan 28

So, if you are an author of quirky, adventurous, challenging and bold sci-fi, fantasy, and horror, please be in touch. And if you are an author who isn’t quite sure whether your work is for the YA or adult market, query me and we’ll figure it out.

John Cusick @johnmcusick · Jan 28

I’m particularly eager to find voices from historically underrepresented perspectives in adult SF/F and horror, and as a queer man, I am especially drawn to LGBTQIA+ and feminist perspectives for those genres as well. #MSWL

John Cusick @johnmcusick

I am so excited to announce that I am now representing adult and crossover sci-fi, fantasy, and horror! MG & YA will continue to be a large part of my list (and I'm always looking for more!), but now I'm also actively pursuing and selling genre projects in the adult space.

So what am I looking for? I want explosive, colorful, funny, bizarre, exciting stories that examine technology, identity, and human relationships of all kinds. As in kidlit, I’m eager for vital, personal, and poignant stories in the #adult sf/f and horror genres. #MSWL

Hannah VanVels @hannahvanvels · Jan 28

I’d love to see MG (or probably any age range really) with more animal companions. #mswl #amwriting
