4.Gangland dramas that give us the lives of the crims, not the police chasing them. Make @katenashagent happy by having it set in Essex. Make me happy by letting me into their livingrooms to watch Eastenders.
3.WW1 or WW2 stories that aren’t acts of derring-do. What about the people left behind, or those in the factories?
Got a character like Tilly Shilling? Get it in my inbox.
A few things I’d love to see drop into the #KateNashLiteraryAgency #submission inbox (address in my bio):
1.A rural Victorian saga, but that leaves the big houses out. As harvest time gets underway I long for hard cider and the sound of threshing machines.
In honor of reopening to queries, I thought I’d list a few things I’d love to see: a mystery series set on Hawaii, westerns (esp with some kind of twist), and speculative fiction set in the Pacific Northwest #MSWL
Eric Smith @ericsmithrocksI almost tweeted "YA rom-con" instead of "YA rom-com" and I officially want to read a YA contemporary novel about two teens planning a heist who OOPS also fall in love. #MSWL
I'm also looking for #YA! At this point, I'm leaning more towards Contemporary YA (think funny like The Field Guide to the American Teenager, or books dealing with important topics like On the Come Up or Heroine). #MSWL
I remember reading Let the Great World Spin two years ago and being amazed by it. I love fiction that follows a cast of characters through their respective stories like that. Or the way The Immortalists does it. #MSWL Bonus points for something "near-historical" like that.
James McGowan @jamerrsonHey #AmWriting Twitter-- I'm all caught up on submissions and dying for something good right now. Here's an up-to-date #MSWL:
I'm admittedly savoring the Tana French books I still haven't read. I'm currently reading Broken Harbor, and would love some twisty #mystery books with hard to read characters. Can be set anywhere, but I'd love a setting I've not seen before (preferably in the US). #MSWL
