Can't do #pitdark today but I *WANT* you to query me with:
--dark academia in YA/Adult
--grounded, scary YA Fantasy
--thrillers/suspense in YA/Adult
I am especially keen to find these written by BIPOC! We need more of those voices on shelves! #mswl
So shoutout to @mishma on this: give me fake dating fun but like in magical bookshop; or best friend's road trip before witch college starts.
Why does fantasy always have to be so end of the world serious? Give Ted Lasso/What We Do in the Shadows vibes #MSWL
Also if you've written a YA Thriller or Horror, I'd love to see it. As well, select YA Fantasy will also be considered. YA with a quirky unique cast of characters is a yes, please!

Today feels like a good day to randomly put my #MSWL out there. I love horror, fantasy, sci-fi, dystopian futures, etc. I’m not looking for any kind of romance or love story and a few other genres. My full wishlist is in my pinned tweet. Looking forward to hearing from you! 😀

Keir Alekseii @KeirAlekseiiIt's finally here! I am so pleased to tell the world that @smlechon and I are now Associate Agents at Azantian Lit! Many thanks to @jenazantian and the ENTIRE team at ALA. You have all been incredible, insightful and kind. I am honored to be part of the team 💖💖💖 pic.twitter.com/4uZu9L256c
Some of my favourite fantasy authors: Robin Hobb, Sharon Shinn, Lois McMaster Bujold, Jacqueline Carey, Charles de Lint, Guy Gavriel Kay, Adrian Tchaikovsky, Brian McClellen. If your fantasy feels like theirs, then send it to me! #MSWL
I'd also love to see historical fantasy (which is hard because you have to world build AND do tons of research, I know) about very specific times and places that aren't England during medieval times.
An update to an on-going #MSWL. I love non-western fantasy. And some people seem to think "just making it up" is non-western. It's not. So much of the fantasy we are familiar with is rooted in European folklore (fairies, dwarves, etc). 1/?
For my personal #MSWL I adore a wide range of genres but especially sci-fi, fantasy, horror and romance (or any mix of the above!) Particular interest in stories with LGBTQ+, disabled and diverse characters. Incidental representation a plus - no more bury your gays pls! #WMPitch
#MSWL someone I 💜 & his brother grew up in Miami & would escape on their little outboard motor boat into the ocean to fish or scuba dive. When life at homes not perfect, the ocean's a great escape. Give me historical 1960s Miami, two brothers, the ocean. Realistic or fantasy...
