Query tip: research. You have the best shot of finding the right agent if you check out their #mswl before querying. Here's mine: adult or YA fiction or non, for fiction specifically rom com, hist, mystery, true crime, spec. Love strong female leads, diverse voices.

All of which to say - I may do a *short* open subs window in January, but I will assess my workload this side of Christmas and make a decision then. Thank you for your patience and understanding, and I hope it helps to have transparency on the process twitter.com/elladkahn/stat…

Excited to say I'll be open to submissions again from 4th Jan - 28th Feb 2021! Looking for upmarket women's fic, speculative fic, crime/thrillers, and YA. I'm in the mood for feel-good books, characters I can root for, emotionally driven stories, immersive settings & imagination!

I would be so interested if there was a Chinese journalist who wanted to do a deep-dive true crime and sociocultural analysis of this case. #MSWL

Book twitter--who's got great crime fiction to send to ELM submissions? I long for a great heist novel with tight tricksy plotting and great characters. Think Clean Break, or The Score, or Void Moon--ideally from more marginalized voices. #MSWL

Also I would love a novel that takes something mundane but criminal and, via great characters, plot, and dialogue, makes it feel exciting and inevitable. The Trump, Inc. podcasts on real estate tax fraud are a great example of what I'm talking about. #MSWL
