Erin Niumata @ecniumata · 5d

Open for submissions! After two weeks of homeschooling, it's clear my plan to retire at one of my children's homes is not a viable option! 😋Whatcha got? #amwriting #literaryagent #womensfiction #cosymystery #romance #BookClub #writers #writerslife #publishing #queries #MSWL

Would love a killer middle grade mystery.* Spooky/supernatural, cozy, and Westing Game puzzle-style varieties all encouraged. #mswl

*no actual murder required

Before I open to queries tomorrow:
- Please don't send queries for a first draft. The MS doesn't need to be perfect, but it should be polished.
- Please don't send me queries for SF/F, PNR, or Historical anything.
- Please send a #query for a polished MS in the following:

Erica @LiteraryErica · 12 Dec 2019

- Cozy Mysteries with series potential (75k+ words, please include a brief series outline/synopsis in your query)

- Psychological & Legal Thrillers with series potential (80k+words, please include a brief series outline/synopsis in your query)

- Romance (50k-90k words)

📚 For writers who are trying to plan for 2020 querying here is my wishlist 📚

Before you send a query to me (or any agent): Please make sure you have polished your manuscript. It should have been critiqued/beta read/something of that nature before sending it to me. (1/6)

It's that time of year when I'm really in the mood for cozy mysteries. I'd be really excited to see a contemporary YA or upper MG that has diverse characters, a playful, intriguing hook, and isn't dark or super serious--like Goldie Vance / Scooby Doo / Hallmark level drama. #MSWL

Does there exist a YA heist/cozy mystery entitled Be Gay Do Crimes? If not, dibs.

(also every idea i have these days is actually just a meme #mswl)
