Tara is open to queries. 🔮✨ @Literary_Tara · 14h

Hi #amquerying, I have an urgent #mswl that needs to be addressed...
😉
I am seriously lacking anything and everything in the contemporary fiction space. Romance, Realistic (nonissue books), WF, RomCom, high concept book! I need them in MG, YA, and Adult categories.

I’m also looking to add adult projects to my list! I’m specifically looking for some fun romcoms right now! #mswl

Kaitlin Olson @KaitlinJOlson · 1d

I should probably do a proper #mswl soon, but I’ve seen a large uptick in pitches/MSs for genre romance in my inbox, which is NOT a good fit for my list. Rom-coms, upmarket women’s fiction—yes, please! But I’m not the right person for contemporary romance.

BIG NEWS: I am open to submissions!!

I've updated my Manuscript Wishlist page and it is FULL of info (too much? maybe.). There's a lot that interests me.

Send me ALL your middle grade! Your YA rom-coms, your horror! #mswl

Romcom (or just rom) mystery in a kooky setting or strange land. Think a contemporary twist on Mary Stewart and Victoria Holt. #MSWL

Lynnette Novak @Lynnette_Novak · 2d

If I missed your #IWSGPit pitch, paste query & 1st 5 pages in email. Adult: Horror, thriller, cont. romance, rom-com, & mystery. YA: thriller, SFF, horror, mystery, & cont. MG: SFF, mystery, cont., & horror. #diversity #MSWL #ownvoices querylynnette (@) theseymouragency (.)com

Honestly, I'd really like a realistic contemporary YA romcom or romance featuring BIPOC characters! Hit me up with something akin to Jenny Han or Sandhya Menon's books. #MSWL

Linda Epstein @LindaEpstein · Jan 8

Something I want to see in my inbox: a YA romcom set in space; even better if the main character is BIPOC and extra points if it's LGBTQ+ too! Not too sciencey & not fantasy or characters w/superpowers (other than being smarty pants and/or physically fit). #MSWL

Megan Ilnitzki @megilnit · Jan 7

YA rom-coms reminiscent of a Nora Ephron film with clever hooks, witty dialogue, and swoon-worthy characters #mswl

I have been searching for a brilliantly funny and romantic as all get out lesbian romcom for a decade now, and I’m really hoping this year I finally find it! The key here for me is it does need to be funny; the world needs more laughter. #MSWL

Things I like to read about: hiking and the outdoors, the transforming power of travel, food & how it connects us, the art of comedy, women’s relationship to anger, building community, community organizing #mswl

Still looking for a YA rom-com that’s incisive & frothy, whether it’s about partners or a novel where someone falls in love with all the many facets of themselves. A falling-in-love-with-yourself story would be amazing! #mswl

As promised, here's my #MSWL for January. As ever I am particularly keen to hear from voices that have historically been unheard in the industry. Looking forward to coming back to lots of fabulous queries!

Lynnette Novak @Lynnette_Novak · 14 Dec 2019

Seeking: Adult: suspense/thrillers, horror, contemporary romance, rom-com, & mysteries. YA: suspense/ thrillers, horror, sci-fi, fantasy, mysteries, & contemporary. MG: Horror, sci-fi, fantasy, contemporary, adventure, mysteries, & humor. Picture books too!!! #diversity #MSWL

OKAY TWITTER. What's the new YA genre trend going to be? Let's decide now so we can all start drafting our dystopian-vampire-werewolf-super hero-space novellas and get 2020 off to a banging start.

I know mythology tends to skew MG, but I’d LOVE to see more global mythology and folklore—especially in genres outside of action/adventure. I know y’all have some spooky folklore ripe for horror. And rom coms with minor deities? Guided journies through loss? Yes. All of it. #MSWL

Ann Leslie Tuttle @AnnLeslieTuttle · 13 Dec 2019

#MSWL. The post that was retweeted is outdated. I am looking for rom coms, historical romance, romantic suspense; women’s fiction, especially stories related to relationships; thrillers; Southern Gothics; Middle Grade and narrative nonfiction.
