Crime

C&W @CWAgencyUK · 6d

And @a_cochran says: I’m looking for quality crime/thriller/speculative/SFF (would love a good epic fantasy), literary novels, historical that doesn’t wear its research too heavily, and anything with a strong concept that hooks me from the first page bit.ly/3btDWXS

Hey #suspense writers! I’m looking for #foundfamily #crimefiction, bonus points if the mob is involved. Female narrator? Yes please!

Please send a proposal to jori@cyleyoung.com. You MUST include the first three chapters and a full story summary.

This is weirdly specific (blame my subconscious) but I’d love to see a YA where the MC is dealing with the fallout of a parent’s very public arrest as a serial killer, and the true crime aficionados and podcasters who now hound their family. #MSWL

Ripped-from-the-headlines, true-crime inspired fiction along the lines of Darling Rose Gold #MSWL #WishlistWednesday

So if anyone’s writing any version of a fictionalized account of the Bobby Dunbar disappearance, I would love to see it 🤗

Getting some traction for an old #mswl tweet so thought I should update with what I am actively looking for RIGHT NOW: Crime and psychological thrillers with a very, very, very clear hook, and wonderful MG - warm, funny, contemporary, magical - anything with a great voice!

#mswl for my nonfiction writing friends:

*I'm currently devouring Patrick Radden Keefe's SAY NOTHING & would love to find a book in this vein. History or history / true crime that reads like a thriller.

*PopScience that takes a deep dive into a subject. Think SPYING ON WHALES.

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!).
