📣CALLING OUT FOR SUBMISSIONS📣
We have recently updated our London wish list following the arrival of our new agent @theresecoen. Looking for both adult and children’s fiction.
Check out our list here: susannalea.com/about/london/l…
Looking forward to reading!!
Crime/thriller. A strong hook. A killer plot. Impossible-to-ignore characters. Think simmering tension and unbearable suspense. (Not currently looking for police procedurals.) #mswl
The one thing I AM missing in the crime fiction space is a US series/titles. I'd love a rural US setting with a small town detective by an author with experience living in the States. Immerse me in the life & ensure the characterisation and mystery is still at the forefront #mswl
Seeking literary fiction w genre element. Literary speculative, crime, thriller. Unique hooks & new views. Linguistic & storytelling mastery, high personal stakes, psychological depth. Kazuo Ishiguro, Katie Kitamura, Ted Chiang, Emily St. John Mandel, Tana French. More⬇️ #MSWL
11/ @LouRaguse's true crime book VANISHED IN VERMILLION comes out soon, and I would LOVE to do more non-fiction crime stories. If you have read, watched, or listened to something true crime, I probably have, too. And if I haven't, please tell me about it.
🩸 Crime 🚓
Likewise, crime with a standout quality is always welcome, whether police procedural, historical crime, detective, psychological crime or crime thriller. Nothing overly gratuitous please!
🦊 Cosy Crime 🕵️
I’d absolutely love cosy crime from *any* period, whether contemporary like Janice Hallett and Richard Osman, traditional Golden Age murder mystery, or historical crime. The more suspects and red herrings, the better!
On my #MSWL Any/all of the following:
1. Quirky/dark humor
2. Paranormal crime syndicate
3. Unusual fairy tale retellings with magic
ALWAYS high heat, HEA/HFN, Fast paced, romance in sci-fi or fantasy sub genre. Prefer under 75K words.
I’m open to queries again and just found out my page is live on Manuscript Wish List!!!! 🎉🎉🎉
One update: I’m looking for the first 50 pgs, not 10, for fiction. 🤗 #mswl
Next week is September which is practically October which is practically Halloween, so I declare spooky season officially open. Writers, bring me your witches, your murders, your haunted houses, your true crime, your spooky nonfiction. Bring it all. #mswl
I’m thrilled to announce I’m a new Literary Associate at Olswanger Literary! I’ll open to submissions on September 1, accepting adult fiction and nonfiction.
If you think we might be a match (my tastes are wide & varied) please query me in September!
"If you're a journalist with a story to tell, whether you're exposing unjust systems in America or shining light on an unsolved crime, I want to bring attention to issues and people *not* always in the spotlight."
Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeYay for @TheTobiasAgency #mswl day. I rep all things #kidlit and right now I am dying for a Ren Faire book or cosplay book. Passing the baton to @LaneHeymont for his MSWL twitter.com/KellyDHouse/st…
