Kim Cusack @KJCBooks12@ajones_litagent Hi Ms. Jones - I just checked out your MSWL for middle grade and in the Fiction section you mention being open to Fantasy but not under the MG heading. I'm wondering if you are open to MG fantasy as well? Thanks so much.
In today's episode of my #mswl book vibes as music, I present the Siberian folk band, @Otyken_official. If this resonates with you, your heritage, your ms, I am dying to read it! 💛
We NEED unrepentant indigenous protagonists---especially in fantasy! 💛
My manuscript wishlist is live! Learn more about the nonfiction, fiction, and YA queries I'm interested in, and if you have a project that seems like a good fit, please send it my way!
Querying authors, we're looking for Christian #YA / #YAFantasy, including fairytale retellings w/ a unique approach. Must be tailored for the Christian market and you need a strong platform. No DMs. See submission guidelines: rachellegardner.com/submissions #MSWL #InspyBooks #amwriting
#MSWL (agented only) - YA and adult - Gothic horror or fantasy, would love a fantasy that reads like a fun romp (like This Vicious Grace), vampires, witches, morally gray characters
again summarizing some recent #mswl for the timeline!

“Unique, genre-blending romance novels. For example, The Plus One by Sarah Archer or any of Roselle Lim’s romantic contemporary fantasy novels. Give me an adult rom-com in space, or with magic. Let’s get weird and swoony.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
New #MSWL item: A prolific Novella series (25-50K words) that is super spicy and falls into the sci-fi/fantasy/paranormal/UF categories. One idea? Superheroes and villains.
MG Genres I’m looking for: fantasy, contemporary, mystery, historical, horror, light/near-future sci-fi
YA: fantasy, contemporary, mystery, historical, horror, light sci-fi, romcom
Adult: light SFF, upmarket, horror, romcom
For the UK #amquerying crowd: NOW would be a very good time to send me fun contemporary MG, magical realism MG, YA romance, YA horror or other YA/crossover SFF.
some video game comps i would LOVE to see include
- final fantasy (especially XII, the aesthetic of kingdoms and sky pirates and a partnership like balthier and fran's? swoon)
- assassin's creed, where the past and present have intertwining plots that are relevant to each other
Nadia El-Fassi ناديه @chronicles_of_nSomeone please give me a Pre-Raphaelite inspired fantasy. The yearning, the drama, unparalleled. #MSWL pic.twitter.com/BwB1Ppp4Nc
Ooooh, I'm here for this! #MSWL for when I hope back up to queries.
