Contemporary

Devin Ross @Devyross · 2 Nov 2018

Reading through my queries this morning and I can't stop thinking I want more YA contemporary. Send me something light and fun that will make me laugh! #mswl

I'd love to see a duo of switched at birth stories with the characters finding out as adults. And the discovery leading to them each finding love matches. Either inspirational romantic suspense or contemporary romance. #mswl

I'm a fan of fantasy, but specifically would LOVE to see more contemporary fantasy right now. Looking for something that is just fun to read--the perfect escape. Also would be open to alternate historical fantasy. #YA #MSWL

Hey #amwriting twitter! I’m on the lookout for a banshee book — reimagined contemporary, classic with a twist — you name it, I’m in. #MSWL

Emily Rodmell @EmilyRodmell · 23 Oct 2018

I kind of want to see a contemporary romance submission that involves no children but a lot of puppies instead. Maybe a litter of adorableness brings the hero and heroine together. #MSWL

Lynnette Novak @Lynnette_Novak · 22 Oct 2018

Attention MG & YA authors: I'm eager to find a contemporary MS to add to my list. I'm especially looking for an issues book that doesn't feel like it is or something unique. Send query & 1st 5 pages to: querylynnette (at) theseymouragency (dot) com. #MSWL #diversity #ownvoices

Happy Friday! Eager for more adult queries - looking for contemporary, smart #womensfiction (maybe to make me cry tears of joy?!), and more psychological suspense with in-depth character dynamics within an intimate setting. #MSWL #querytip

Replying to @JeannaLStars

Oh, it is difficult to say what you are NOT looking for because you sometimes surprise yourself (or rather, a great submission surprises you)! Things I'm looking for at the moment includes 'uplit', great police procedural and contemporary issue-driven YA. #AskAgent
