I am open to queries! I need to prioritize current authors, so right now there are very specific types of books that I will be paying closer attention to.

Submission instructions are at dunhamlit.com, and this graphic will hopefully also help you plan when to query me.

WRITERS! New #MSWL w/ a few changes. Still looking for Adult NF (lifestyle, parenting, sports, current events, etc) and YA/MG/PB, but expanding YA/MG to fantasy and still including dystopian/sci-fi/horror/contemporary. Make me laugh, make me sob! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/shari-maurer/

Mermaids, Take 2 #MSWL . This one is all fun, summer, contemporary vibes, but people who work as professional mermaids. If you watch MERPEOPLE on netflix, I want the fun, summer, YA version #MSWL

I really want to see more YA Fantasy in my inbox. Romantic Fantasy, grounded/contemporary fantasy, paranormal fantasy. Light magic, spooky magic, bizarre magic. Dark, frothy and fun, ALL OF IT. #mswl

July I’d love to see contemporary fiction in any genre or age category! I’ll also take poetry and novel-in-verse.

I've officially gone through all my queries. So, it's time for a short #MSWL

My focus right now is contemporary ❀️romance❀️
-Rom-coms with fantastic humour (I love sarcasm) and layered characters
-Navigating dating/love/heartbreak as a millennial
-Sports romance!

Here are the main differences in my MSWL from last year:

-In the MG space, I'm only now open to upper MG (protagonists 12+)

-Open more to contemporary fantasy, less to genre fantasy

-Open less to PBs with animal casts

-Narrower parameters on historical and dystopian

*NEW: In both MG & YA, I learned over my first year that I'm almost always a better fit for contemporary fantasy than I am for genre fantasy.

Still happy to consider fantasy if you think I'm a strong fit for other reasons, but this is something I want to be forthright about!

YA and MG contemporary fantasy: My second love! I’m interested in the same topics, and will look foremost for lyrical writing and character focus, with unique but very grounded magic systems. Comp: THE NATURE OF WITCHES by Rachel Griffin.

YA and upper MG contemporary continue to be my first priority! Lyrical prose, novels-in-verse, β€œdark and gritty,” β€œissue-driven,” character-driven, voice-y. I want to feature LGBTQIA+ voices, BIPOC voices, disability and chronic illness, mental health and neurodivergence, grief.
