Thing I’ve noticed: my YA list skews more girl, and my MG list more boy. I’d like to balance that, but still maintaining my overarching tastes: high concept, good plots, not-issue-books, joy and exploration and fantasy (both literal and just escapism). #MSWL
MG + YA Historical Fiction/Historical Fantasy—I am a history buff myself + would particularly love to see stories which highlight a marginalized narrative that hasn’t been explored as much as the white narrative has in this space. #MSWL
Mermaids! PB, MG, YA, GNs.✨🧜♀️ I'm not looking for an epic fantasy, or a story in which someone discovers they’re a mermaid, or a romance in which a mermaid falls in love with a human. I'd love for it to be something a non-genre reader could get into. #MSWL
I'm still searching for a fantasy of any sorts inspired by Korean culture (this is for my historical fantasy K-drama lovers!), since this has been a very personal wish of mine as an agent for a very long time! #mswl
What my inbox is hungry for: Some adult Crime Fiction, Dark Comedy, and Thrillers. Maybe some unique YA fantasy. Also children’s Mystery and Fantasy. A killer True Crime book would make my life. Are you writing one? #MSWL @VictressLit
Nivia Evans @NiviaEvansHistory-inspired epic fantasy with intricate, detailed worldbuilding. I'm talking Hannibal's march on Rome, the rise of Shaka Zulu, Sultana Shajar al-Durr of Egypt, etc.
Look to history and give me some new epics! #mswl
