I am actively digging through my inbox looking for: #MSWL
▪️PB/MG NF about science or history topics
▪️Adult mystery/suspense in the vein of Oyinkan Braithwaite, Steph Cha, Alex North, Tana French
▪️Upmarket family stories
▪️Horror: Psychological! Ghosts!
I can't tell you how often I think about films like Birdbox and A Quiet Place, and how badly I want to read more novels about parents fighting for their kids and found families in apocalyptic settings.
I mean, I also DON'T want to read them, but also I do.
Send me those! #MSWL
For #adult, I’m particularly hungry for commercial #WF. Give me a strong hook & upmarket writing. I’m open to MANY different genres here, but my sweet spot are stories that deal with family and/or long held secrets #MSWL
Ashley Herring Blake @ashleyhblakeI’m so excited that the news is out! I’ve joined the team at Rees Literary Agency as an agent! I’m so excited to work with this stellar team & be a part of getting awesome, needed books into the world! I’m officially open to queries! reesagency.com/ashley-herring…
Of course I’m looking for character-driven and heartfelt MG and YA, but I’m also very hungry for upmarket adult fiction and romance! Give me all your family, friend, and romantic angst! #MSWL
I'd be interested in seeing MG or YA that explores step-families in an interesting, nuanced way. I have step-parents, step-siblings, a former step-parent, former step-siblings, a new "step-mom" i.e. dad's third wife. It's rich. #MSWL
Kayla Lightner @LightnerKaylaOk, so...screw it. This is part #MSWL, part “the Manuscript that got away”. In 2018 someone sent a fantasy ms to one of our associates about a female protag. who was competing against her 4 older brothers to be named her dictator father’s successor (1/3)
It had everything I love: an unapologetically ruthless female protag; messy royal family drama; non-Eurocentric inspired mythology. But because I wasn’t an agent at the time, I couldn’t offer rep. I STILL THINK ABOUT IT TO THIS DAY(2/3)
Disney+ @disneyplusLiving in this house will help prepare her for the White House. Start streaming the Original Series, #DiaryOfAFuturePresident, Jan. 17 on #DisneyPlus! pic.twitter.com/nbmva7AOyo
Major #MSWL vibes with this show which I will be devouring!! Give me a MG or YA like this with friendship and family and Latinx girls becoming POTUS!
