First Lady Kim Kardashian-West @JackHarbonThe world needs more queer gothic horror-romances about decade-long family secrets and forbidden love and murder, lies, and passion.
Inconveniently Specific Wish List #mswl
− Intergenerational found family like Howl’s Moving Castle; This is England
− YA horror like Beetlejuice, WWDITS, Paprika
− NYC stories; no Gossip Girl energy (unless satire or horror)
− Strong ensemble like E4’s Misfits; The Wire
#MSWL I’m DESPERATELY NEEDING a YA or adult romance where a sweet couple falls in love—no insta love. I want to see their journey, whether it’s f/f, m/m, f/m...love is love. I just want ❤️ and laughter and kindness with lots of friends and family and community.
A mix of themes I like to see explored (not all at once!): nature, motherhood, identity, making difficult decisions, travel, myth of meritocracy, feminism, longevity, family, heartbreak, secret histories, individuality, modernism, trust, class, money, race, art, memory. #mswl
Would love to see more fiction submissions in my inbox!! Particularly a big, emotional family drama with multiple POVs—some faves are LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE, BEARTOWN, and Bill Clegg’s DID YOU EVER HAVE A FAMILY #MSWL
#MSWL I'm now open to adult contemporary fiction, both commercial and upmarket. I want witty beach reads, elements of suspense/thriller, family secrets, and books about rich people behaving badly
As a new agent, I'm excited to see the following in my inbox.
Adult & YA Fiction: women's fiction, romance/rom-com, SF, paranormal, horror, thriller, and family drama.
Nonfiction: self-help, memoirs, cookbooks, lifestyle, and how-to.

Deborah Nemeth @DebNemeth#MSWL For Carina Adores, I'd love to acquire a queer marriage of convenience contemporary.
Or a queer take on any of my fave tropes...
#MSWL Some of my favorite tropes include secret agenda, secret identity...secrets in general. Fake dating, arranged marriages, second chance, forbidden love, and forced proximity. I enjoy stories with strong family elements, and characters that are quirky and smart.
Sarah Guan @🏡 @Sarah_GuanAll this chatter about a vampire (and werewolf) comeback. I have thoughts...
I like my supernatural, human-but-not characters. But I’d love some new takes—not the resurrecting of classics that worked the last time around. Let’s see new perspectives get a bite at that apple.
If a vampire comeback materializes, I’m just going to remind the world that this thread exists and is still on my #MSWL. Give me all the PoC vampires with messy family drama and historical traumas that won’t go away esp. since great-granny vamp is still salty about the Opium Wars
