Contemporary #YA with a literary voice about ordinary teens dealing with life, family, relationships, friendships falling apart, sexuality, mental health, or recovery. A blend of genre and literary would be best of all.

Agents, I’m on the hunt for a Christmasy holiday picture book but think family/cozy and less Santa. Note: no unsolicited manuscripts please; agented submissions only #kidlit #MSWL

"I want novels about dysfunctional families. Extra bonus points if they're wealthy (think HBO's Succession) because, let's face it, reading about rich people in trouble is fun. Super extra bonus points if there's an immigrant angle."

In modern fantasy I'm looking for things like Jade City. Give me family shenanigans, politics, with really unique magic systems. Babel and Black Sun are always top on my list. Overall anything with colonizer bashing themes, non-western mythos, pirates, or dark academics

All the TV series I have loved of late - @Yellowstone , @ThePeakyBlinder , @succession - have a complex, competitive, ruthless but loyal, loving & unforgettable family at their core. If one of these is at the centre of your novel, please send it my way 🙏 #MSWL #manuscriptwishlist

Upmarket! Something commercial w/gorgeous writing, featuring people who are not okay bc sometimes we're not okay. I want to feel the spectrum of emotions. Break my 💔, tell me the story out of order or backward. Familial or friendship stories or just a strong cast of characters.

Adult Fantasy

Villains being truly and genuinely villainous, romance at the forefront but politics at the core, family dynasties, high stakes adventure, historical dramas, highly aesthetic spaces, thoughtfully done ensemble casts with series potential. Give me more Fourth Wing

I'm still hungry for historical! On that front: I can't stop thinking about GREAT CIRCLE, which I waited a criminally long time to read. I'm desperate for an epic family novel told across timelines and generations.
