Crime

Kianna Shore @KiannaShore · Jan 10

I find a mixture of genres THRILLING. So something like historical crime I would LOVE. In fact, universe, PLEASE send me more #historical fiction. I’d also love to see some contemporary thrillers and mysteries - a sort of YA Gone Girl (fingers crossed!).

Also on my #mswl, I want some really good commercial fiction. My list has been trending literary over the years and I'd like to bring in a little balance. So rock me with your crime fiction and suspense, your genre bending reads, and your love stories. Big ideas wanted!

Many things put me in the mood for murdery reading, but it's especially true when the weather gets cold. Send me all your murder books! Your contemporaries, your historicals, your cozies, your true crime. #MSWL

Let's start off this Monday with a #MSWL! Liza is craving a novel set in India; whether it be a sweeping romance, a brutal crime saga, a funny detective story, or an armchair traveller's journey.

#MSWL Looking for adult NONFICTION that has high adaptability for scripted or unscripted tv/film. Pop culture, true crime, celebrity, whistleblower, well written proposals. You only have one time to make a great first impression.

I know there may be great pitches that I don't see, so if I haven't favourited your pitch, but you think we'd be a good fit, please do still send me your MS marked 'FAO: Leodora #DVpit'.

I would love to find some twisty psych/domestic thrillers. I also have a soft spot for heartbreaking historical or women's fiction. Finally, if you're sitting on a crime novel with a killer hook, please send it my way. #MSWL
