Fantasy

Megan Ilnitzki @megilnit · Jan 7

Lush, high-stakes MG/ YA fantasy with series potential featuring unlikely heroes you can’t help but root for and writing that knocks your socks off. #mswl

Peter Knapp @petejknapp · Jan 7

I'd also love a serious MG fantasy series...something dark, dangerous, and with a large canvas and great world-building. #mswl

Barry Goldblatt @barrygoldblatt · Jan 6

I would love to find a fantastic animal fantasy! Watership Down is an all time fav, Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh as well, but I also love the Redwall books. Bring me your talking animal stories! #MSWL

For our #YA #MSWL, we’re seeking lovable, well-developed characters who’re falling in love for the first time (such as Nancy and Jonathan from Stranger Things!) whether it’s contemporary, sci-fi, or fantasy.

DID YOU KNOW I’m interested in adding magic and light fantasy to my MG list? In the vein of the funny, contemporary realistic books I love to publish with a dash of magic to alter the world we think we know. #mswl

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · Jan 6

It begins. I'm open to queries again at @PSLiterary!

You can check out my #MSWL over on my blog.

Happy New Year, let's make some books. ericsmithrocks.com/blog/2019/12/2…

Good Morning! I am OPEN to queries for 2020, which means it's time to do a #MSWL thread! pic.twitter.com/9LH52Dv3Fn

For 2020, I am mostly looking for Middle Grade (Upper) and Adult stories! This includes MG Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Contemporary, and Historical or any mix of the above! It also includes Adult Contemporary Romance and Adult Fantasy and any mix of the two! #MSWL

Eric Smith @ericsmithrocks · Jan 3

I open up to queries again at @PSLiterary on Monday, so I've updated my wishlist!

I'd love to see more adult fiction and non-fiction this year. Send me your messy genre-blending stories, niche cookbooks, and complex memoirs.

Details on the blog! ericsmithrocks.com/blog/2019/12/2… #MSWL

I want to concentrate on building my adult list.

Send me your romances, contemporaries, grounded fantasies, historical fiction (feeling the 1920s these days), thrillers/mysteries, speculative, and contemporary stories.

Oh, and horror! But nuanced horror. #MSWL.

-Low fantasy/portal fantasies (YA/adult): Something transportive but based in our world, like THE HAZEL WOOD.

-Middle grade: All. Of. It. Especially mysteries: Always looking for GREENGLASS HOUSE or WESTING GAME vibes.

YA fantasy! I’m all about witchy blood magic—darker is better (does anyone see a trend here yet). Queer! Enemies to lovers! Magic with consequences! Tangled friend/family relationships! Unique plot lines with lots of tension/conflict! AND DON’T FORGET THE KISSING I NEED KISSING
