Dear #amwriting #amquerying community,
I'm really looking for Black witches/psychics in contemporary fantasy (adult, YA, or MG), plus size MCs, YA and adult thrillers/suspense, and please keep sending these #ownvoices LGBTQIA+ and disability rep books. #MSWL
Hey agents! I love that I get to edit books across all age groups, but I'd love to see more middle grade in my inbox! Fantasy, contemporary, and everything in between is cool, but I have a soft spot for the laugh-out-loud variety :)
My full #mswl is here: nicolefiorica.wordpress.com/mswl/
Megan Carroll @MeganACarrollAll emails will find me both well and reading submissions today, FYI. #wfh #submissions
Things I’d love to find in there include but are not limited to: love stories, contemporary YA, ghost/horror stories and brilliant non-fic proposals about the complex and diverse world we live in. #submissions #MSWL
In the last couple of months, I struck out twice when offering on fun contemporaries. One a YA rom-com, the other an adorable, witty, MG. So, #MSWL want: fun contemporaries with a great hook, super strong writing, & loveable protagonists, even when they are a bit complicated.
#MSWL Alert: I'd love to see a #MG or #YA with a #climate or #environmental theme, speculative/near-future or contemporary. Bonus if it's #ownvoices from a writer of color or about an under-served community!
Agents, I am actively acquiring MG, YA, GN, and the occasional PB. Commercial-Literary. Immigrant, LBGTQIA+, BIPOC voices. Speculative fiction, horror, fantasy, contemporary. Big fan of underdogs, flawed characters, impossible situations. #mswl #ya #mg #pb #gn
Summer #MSWL refresh:
-still looking for great contemporary (or historical) YA thrillers & mysteries!
-would love to find a YA historical set in Asia, Africa, or South America
-smart, upmarket contemporary rom-coms by BIPOC authors

At the risk of seeing my inbox explode... #amquerying folks I am not getting enough Adult Romance submissions! Please send all the contemporary and historicals my way (I'm not the best match for Rom Suspense or Paranormal) #mswl
Steven Salpeter @StiSalI can also stan the very realistic “they’d be perfect together if one of them were less of an idiot,” but only for so long* before I throw the book out the window.
(*”So long” is apparently more than two books in a series?)
I guess for the search engines I should add “I love any variety of a slow burn romance” in YA Contemporary, YA Fantasy, MG, Adult Contemporary, Adult, NA, GN, WF, #MSWL
Also really looking for some amazing African mythology and cultural beliefs/customs via contemporary fantasy, historical fantasy, or just plain fantasy. #MSWL Saw one in my box and am saving it to circle back. I’d love more!!!
