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.
#A6 I’d love to find an exciting MG mystery/detective story, especially if it’s funny too! I’m also always on the lookout for great YA with an unreliable narrator or an intense and overwhelming love story. #SCBWIchat #mswl
Sara Schonfeld @SaraSchonThe pitch: a modern day ghost-hunter, but instead of locating spirits, they're a detective who tracks down exes who have cut off communication.
This is a genuine--and impossible IRL--dream job, so I'd at least like to rep a book about it. #MSWL

gay wrath month @captainstephI spent my vacation reading every Holmes/Watson fic on The Seventeenth Step and am now craving a genuinely queer Sherlock Holmes YA retelling, historical or contemporary #mswl
#MSWL please send me your queer teen detectives
Hey all #amquerying writers: I am now open to submissions! Check out my page for querying instructions and the genres I'm seeking. No pitches on Twitter, please. lowensteinassociates.com/ronald-gerber/
#MSWL someone write me a paranormal legal thriller, with a series in mind, with a hotshot young attorney who gets help from the ghost of former detective who can’t let his work go even in death (or something along those lines).
#MSWL Inspy/Christian thriller like Cara Putnam’s HIDDEN JUSTICE series except with a religious yet ultra strong, savvy & compassionate lead female detective. This MSWL inspired by Dateline Secrets Uncovered Good & Evil episode’s real-life Detectice Trapp. She’s the lead I want.
While we’re getting to know each other, how about some #mswl? Today I’ll talk about YA:
- Contemporary with earnest, engaging voices (WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI, TO ALL THE BOYS, DUMPLIN’)
- Lush fantasy (CARAVAL, Grisha series)
- Sassy girl detective a la Veronica Mars
Ali Herring @HerringAli#MSWL I don’t usually ask for thrillers but I’d like one where a detective or FBI agent purchases a used computer at a local junk shop & finds disturbing images on it—including a photograph of a well-known missing person, someone he personally knows. And she may still be alive.

Ooh, #mswl day! Right now I’m craving great SF/horror mashups, general dark horror, PI mysteries, gothic suspense, and dark thrillers - YA & adult! Diverse voices always a plus!
#MSWL Day! Send me your haunting, upmarket and nuanced detective novels, like Tana French and Megan Abbott. More female protagonists please! Complex, coming of age, contemporary relationships, think Marlena and The Immortalists. Adult only.
