I'm starting to catch up on my submissions. I've answered all queries and have read all submissions sent before January 15th. To celebrate, I'm reposting my pretty #MSWL pic.
Tor Books @torbooks"There are new literary voices we want to bring to our reading communities and followers… [and] we just plain love horror.”
Get ready for Nightfire, a horror imprint from Tom Doherty Associates, with new books coming in 2021:
#MSWL Spine-chilling diverse horror, adult and YA
Hey, #amquerying peeps! I really, really, really want MG projects. #OwnVoices and #diversity = bonus! I also really, really, really want some I-cannot-put-this-down thrillers. Send query & 1st 5 pages to: querylynnette (@) theseymouragency (dot) com. #mswl
Really enjoyed ONE DAY IN DECEMBER. Would LOVE to find a project in that vein. Just a sweet rom-com that completely pulls you in. Especially one that features a diverse cast &/or is centered around a holiday/tradition other than Xmas. #MSWL #A #WF #R
I’m fascinated by ritual & faith - how these intertwine to create belief - and don't see enough religious diversity in my queries. Especially books that explore what belief feels like and/or what it is to want to believe, but find you can't. #MSWL
“Commercial Fiction and Rom Coms: (especially with a diverse cast!) like AYESHA AT LAST, JANE THE VIRGIN, ONE DAY IN DECEMBER, THE PROPOSAL, and Elin Hilderbrand. I need a very strong hook.” @carlywatters #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/

I’d love to see more #ownvoices and #diversity MG and YA queries. Paste query and first five pages in body of email and send to: querylynnette (@) theseymouragency (dot) com. #writingcommmunity #amquerying #MSWL
I'd love to find some more SFF novels that are fun, moving, diverse, and accessible.
My favorite SFF read last year was by @pengshepherd, and I'm smitten with the works of @KatWithSword @DelilahSDawson and @ChuckWendig.
The City of Brass by @SAChakrabooks is a perfect book.
I'm on the lookout for more diverse and inclusive voices in YA across all genres.
My favorite books last year were by authors like @RantingOwl @justinaireland @theames and @AshWrites.
And I'm DESPERATE to find a sci-fi genre blending masterpiece like @erin_bowman's Contagion.
Devin Ross @DevyrossHey #writingcommmunity I'm looking for some specific things in my queries so here are a few #mswl items I'd love to see!
In #YA I'm looking for a few things. 1) Diverse, inclusive contemporary by #ownvoices authors 2) Send me something that will absolutely break my heart 3) strong voices in any genre 4) I always love a MC with an attitude and witty comebacks. #MSWL
