Beautifully written or Upmarket Adult fantasy/SF/horror that would appeal to a book club audience. Think MEXICAN GOTHIC, STATION ELEVEN, or THE STARLESS SEA. #mswl
"I want unique, genre-blending romance novels. I wish I had worked on THE PLUS ONE by Sarah Archer or any of Roselle Lim’s breathtaking romantic contemporary fantasy novels. Give me an adult rom com in space, or with magic."
it has finally happened! i have a #mswl!
take a peek and see if i'm a good candidate for your submission 🐱👀🤠❣️
"In the middle grade space, I love grounded fantasy, magical realism, or any stories with light touches of magic."
I am in the reading mood for fantasy right now. I want writing like Margaret Owen with the snap crackle and pop of Sarah J. Maas's characters #MSWL #YA
Lauren Spieller is open to queries! @laurenspiellerOkay YA Twitter, where is my spooky YA fantasy? Where’s my ghost story? My haunted house? My deadly secrets? My poison book? I want vibes, people! VIBES!
But also a plot that works and strong character development and a magic system that functions.
And VIBES! pic.twitter.com/NXnijrJ8gu
Sorry this is #mswl!
#MSWL YA or adult (agented): A big romantic fantasy from the POV of the villain (or one of the POVs is the villain, but like a real villain with a redemption arc or the heartbreaking lack thereof) (Maybe this makes no sense but this is what my heart wants right now lol)
I want a fantasy series with a new magic system. Not centered around a firebird, or death, or fairies. #MSWL
I am craving an epic High Fantasy Romance. Think WINNER'S CURSE or ACOTAR. #MSWL
Given the fact that I’m reopening to queries in 5 days I’ll share some of my current #MSWL
🧚🏻Adult fantasy (low fantasy ie magical realism, urban fantasy)
💖Adult romance (in any subgrenre; specifically bisexual, pan, demi, ace MCs)
🎢 thrillers (especially psychological)
🥳I am officially open to queries🥳
Let's chat about the tropes I'm looking for, and what makes me dive into a manuscript! Here’s my #MSWL for more info on the books I want to help people discover!
I can’t sleep so I’m posting my updated #mswl as I’ll be reopening to queries March 1st. Please note I’m no longer looking for YA in any genres/sub genres. Query me at: QueryManager.com/carolinejtruss…

If you have written something you think Alex might like then go to our website for details on how to submit! (5/5)
📚FANTASY - He's looking for page-turning plots in worlds that feel fully formed and tangible to a reader. He enjoys darkness in these settings and loves morally grey characters. He's always on the lookout for novels with an unlikely group of heroes. (4/5)
In fantasy: Anything with a fairy tale at the root of the story is fair game but also any retelling of a classic story is my jam. From Shakespeare to Spielberg, I love stories that take familiar characters and upends their world and everything we thought we knew about them. #mswl
In YA, Dark Academia with a haunting setting: creepy tunnels, secret societies, and characters with questionable motives/abilities 🏰
Rom Com's 💕 Slow burning romances. Bonus points if it's with an out of school setting
Fantasy 🪄 New spin on magic world and/or powers
It's #MSWL Day... 📜
In Adult I'm now open to SFF, so I'd love to see lush world building, morally grey MC's & lovable villains 🖤
Time Travel where it compliments a much bigger plot 🪐
I'm still on the look out for a psychological thriller with an unreliable narrator 🎭
It's #MSWL Day, & what I'm most excited about right now is LOVE stories! Please, please gimme 'em! Also, I'd love to see thrillers in the adult & YA space. There's more–because I'm greedy like that–so check out the new manuscript wishlist page. Thanks! manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/Jemi…
I'm not actively looking for new MG at this time, and I'm being selective with new YA but still very excited about the ones I get excited about. Send me your contemporaries & your very fresh-feeling fantasy in particular!
Big fascinating SFF with a moment that grabs you by the throat, like EMPIRE OF EXILES or the forthcoming THESE BURNING STARS - or, not on my list, THE TRAITOR BARU CORMORANT or GIDEON THE NINTH.
